What is Compounding?

Compounding is the practice of formulating prescription medications to provide customized, highly effective treatment options. Compounding may also involve combining medication with flavorings for pediatric or veterinary use. Because every patient is different and has unique needs, customized, compounded medications are a vital part of quality medical care. Compounded prescriptions can even be life-saving if certain allergies or conditions exist.

Why Compound?

If you need a special dosage that isn't available in commercial form, compounding allows pharmacists to create the exact dosage and dosage form you need.

Taking medication is no fun for anyone, but it can be especially challenging for children. Compounding can give medication a pleasing flavor, making sure kids do a good job of taking their medicine.

Compounding provides medication that is highly customized to each patient, tailored specifically by dosage form and dosage strength.

Certain medications have been discontinued and others are unavailable in preferred dosage forms. Compounding can formulate commercially discontinued products and custom tailor the dosage form.
