What is Compounding?

Compounding represents a blend of time-honored practices, modern medical expertise, and cutting-edge technology. Skilled professional pharmacists leverage this approach to craft medications tailored to the unique needs of individual patients. While it may have been the standard for pharmaceutical prescriptions in the past, its significance persists today as medical professionals and patients alike recognize that mass-produced drug strengths and dosages may not suit everyone’s specific requirements. For those seeking customized dosages for better outcomes, compounding remains a valuable option.

Our specialized compounding experts excel in preparing:

  • Personalized Dosage Forms: These contain the ideal medication dose for each patient, ensuring precise treatment.
  • Unique Medication Forms: We offer specialized forms not readily available commercially, including transdermal gels, troches, “chewies,” and lollipops.
  • Allergen-Free Medications: Our formulations exclude excipients like gluten, dyes, sugar, lactose, or alcohol, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions.
  • Combination Medications: We combine compatible drugs into a single dosage form for ease of administration and improved patient adherence.
  • Specialty Medications: We can create medications that aren’t commercially available, have been discontinued, or are currently in short supply.

The efficacy of any compounded medication hinges on its precise preparation, emphasizing the importance of selecting your compounding pharmacy wisely. Ongoing professional education for compounding pharmacists and technicians, advanced equipment, and top-quality chemicals are vital for ensuring the quality of the preparations. Experience and innovation also play pivotal roles. When adjusting a formula or devising a unique preparation, compounding pharmacists must consider various factors, including the properties of active ingredients, solubility, viscosity, and the most suitable dosage form for effective delivery. Standard Operating Procedures and potency tests are integral to this process.

Our compounding experts can craft customized medications in a variety of forms, such as sublingual drops, oral and nasal sprays, lollipops, rectal solutions, suppositories, and more.
