What is compounding?
Compounded medications are ordered by a physician and personalized by a compounding pharmacy in the exact strength, dosage and formulation to meet a unique medical need. Compounding pharmacies can produce unique dosage forms based on patient preferences and/or restrictions. Examples include dye-free, preservative-free, alcohol-free, and/or sugar-free forms of medications. We have flavored products for kids and Veterinarian products.
Compounding has been an essential part of pharmacy practice for centuries. Many regulatory bodies have set rules with which pharmacies must be compliant. The Food and Drug Administration allows products to be compounded as long as licensed practitioners have written a prescription for a specific patient to be filled at a licensed pharmacy.
