Compounding involves the customized manufacture of medications tailored for an individual patient as per the instructions of a physician. Prior to the industrialization of modern medication, all medication prescriptions were customized, whereby pharmacists (also referred to as chemists) would extract active medicinal ingredients and combine them with other liquids or powders for patient consumption.
In recent times, physicians and patients alike have rekindled an interest and appreciation for the art of pharmaceutical compounding, which allows for solutions to niche problems. Every patient has specific health needs and a commercially available solution may not always be best. Compounding allows pharmacists to offer innovative, unique solutions for these individual needs.
Our pharmacists are able to formulate a variety of compounds including topical creams, ointments, lotions, oral suspensions, suppositories, capsules, lollipops, injections, eye drops and many more.
At our pharmacies, we compound using the finest grade of chemicals and use state-of-the-art equipment. We enjoy problem-solving and we will work with you and your physician practitioner to maximize your medication therapy outcome.
