WHAT IS COMPOUNDING?

Pharmacy compounding involves customizing medications to meet the needs of individual patients. Although compounding may seem like a new idea, it’s actually the way that all prescriptions were made prior to the 1950’s. When the manufacturing of mass quantities of medication became available, compounding slowly declined, and “one-size-fits-all” medications became the standard.

MAKING MEDICATION ALLERGY FRIENDLY

Some patients may need a particular medication, but are allergic to one or two of its ingredients. For example, many people are allergic to lactose, dyes, gluten, or preservatives. Compound pharmacists can often eliminate or find suitable replacements for these ingredients, allowing patients to benefit from the medication without difficulty.

MAKING DISCOUNTED MEDICATIONS AVAILABLE

Another advantage of compounding is the ability to produce medications which are no longer mass-produced. Large pharmaceutical companies often discontinue making medications which aren’t profitable for them to make.

MAKING MEDICATIONS EASIER TO USE

Medication can be given to the body in a variety of ways. Injections, creams, tablets or capsules may deliver the necessary medication, but some patients have difficulty with one or more of these methods. Compound pharmacists can fill a prescription in the most desirable form for each patient.
