Benefits of Compounding

Compounding allows a medication to be personalized for an individual patient. The ability to create these personalized medications allows our compounding pharmacists to help your patients with a wide variety of needs.

What kinds of prescriptions can be compounded?

Almost any kind.  We are not able to compound medications that are currently commercially available.  
*Note: All compounded medications require a prescription.

There are countless products and medications that are no longer commercially available, but that physicians and patients report are very useful in treating a specific problem.  Ask our Compounding Pharmacist for more information.

Why Compounding?

  • When needed medications are discontinued by or generally unavailable from pharmaceutical companies, often because the medications are no longer profitable to manufacture.
  • When the patient is allergic to certain preservatives, dyes, or binders in available off-the-shelf medications.
  • When treatment requires tailored dosage strengths for patients with unique needs (for example, an infant).
  • When a pharmacist can combine several medications a patient is taking to increase compliance.
  • When a patient cannot ingest the medication in its commercially available form and a pharmacist can prepare the medication in cream, liquid or other form that the patient can easily take.
  • When medications require flavor additives to make them more palatable for some patients, most often, children.
