We are a compounding pharmacy, which means we make custom medication tailored to your needs. For example:
Traditional compounding is the preparation of a medication to meet the prescribes exact specifications.
While most pharmacies offer level of compounding, most compounding is done in pharmacies that have made the investment.
The practice of compounding is regulated by state boards of pharmacy. Community and hospital compounding pharmacists are allowed exemptions to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1938 if they comply with the regulations outlined in Section 503A.
The art of compounding utilizes modern medicine while still holding true to the roots of the profession of pharmacy.
A compounded medication is a drug that is specifically prepared for you, based on a prescription from your doctor. Your pharmacist will mix different ingredients together to create an individualized medication for you, in a specific strength and dosage form 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.Your pharmacist is trained in compounding a wide variety of ointments, gels, syrups, suspensions, suppositories, capsules and other formulations that can make medications easier to take, address any special health problems, or just simply get you feeling better, faster.
Compounded medications are generally safe and effective for most patients who have talked to their doctor about their health and how a compounded medication can help them.
Medications are compounded and dispensed to patients only upon receipt of a valid patient-specific prescription.
