What is Compounding?

Compounding provides an innovative way for pharmacists to customize medications to fit the needs of their patients. The art of compounding utilizes modern medicine techniques while still holding true to the pharmacist profession. 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. Many compounds are specialized medication combinations or compounded in other forms that are not otherwise commercially available. Compounding requires a relationship between the patient, physician and pharmacist. If there is not a current or available treatment that fits your unique needs, we will work together to provide an alternative treatment option best fit for you.
