What is Compounding?
Compounding is the pharmaceutical science of making a medication and an individual patient compatible. Sometimes mass-produced prescription drugs and dosages just aren’t as effective as they should be due to an individual’s unique biology.
Compounding allows our specially trained pharmacists to create greater compatibility and effectiveness between patient and medication. This is done by taking into consideration the patient’s unique needs and symptoms.
Our compounding method uses raw chemicals, powders, liquids, and special equipment to make each medication—one at a time. This ensures in a fully customized prescription tailored to each patient’s specific needs according to the dosages and directions specified by their physician.
There are many reasons why a patient may require a compounded medication.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can be safer and more effective than traditional hormonal medications.
Some patients require dosages that are not commercially available. Compounding allows for the creation of these dosages in a variety of delivery methods.
Some patients have difficulty taking medications in their commercially available forms. Compounding allows these medications to be delivered via a multitude of methods including creams, capsules, liquids, sublingual troches, lozenges, suppositories, and more.
Safe and Legal
Our compounding pharmacy complies with regulations set forth by the State Boards of Pharmacy, who set and enforce regulations for compounding, just as they do for traditional pharmacy.
Our pharmacists make compounds using ingredients that come from FDA-registered and inspected facilities.
Specialization and Experience
Our staff has over twenty years experience in compounding medications. Our pharmacists have received extensive training in compounding techniques and have access to a support network that keeps us up to date with cutting-edge ideas and innovations.
Fewer and fewer pharmacies offer compounding services because it requires additional training and specialized equipment, which many pharmacies do not have. We feel it is imperative to offer these services as an option to our customers.
Our goal is to make sure that you receive high-quality compounded medications at the most competitive prices.
