Compounding is the ability to prepare unique, unavailable, less expensive or more palatable dosage forms of drugs and is the basis of the profession of pharmacy. Physicians often request us to alter or tailor a medication to meet the specific needs of a patient. When an individual is unable to take or use a commercial medicine, costly problems may occur - such as avoidable physician and emergency room visits, hospital admissions, and lost time from school or work.
We reduce this waste and improve our patients' quality of life by compounding prescriptions - making medicines into forms that people can use.
