Compounding combines an ageless art with the latest
medical knowledge and state-of-the-art technology,
allowing specially trained professionals to prepare
customized medications to meet each patientís specific
needs. Compounding is fundamental to the profession of
pharmacy and was a standard means of providing
prescription medications before drugs began to be
produced in mass quantities by pharmaceutical
manufacturers. The demand for professional compounding
has increased as healthcare professionals and patients
realize that the limited number of strengths and dosage
forms that are commercially available do not meet the
needs of many patients, and that these patients often
have a better response to a customized dosage form that
is "just what the doctor ordered".
Our compounding professionals can prepare
- unique dosage forms containing the best dose of
medication for each individual.
- medications in dosage forms that are not
commercially available, such as transdermal gels,
troches, "chewies", and lollipops.
- medications free of problem-causing excipients
such as dyes, sugar, lactose, or alcohol.
- combinations of various compatible medications
into a single dosage form for easier administration
and improved compliance.
- medications that are not commercially available.
Quality Compounding Maximizes Therapeutic Outcomes
The efficacy of any formulation is directly related
to its preparation, which is why THE SELECTION OF YOUR
COMPOUNDING PHARMACY IS CRITICAL. Ongoing training for
compounding pharmacists and technicians,
state-of-the-art equipment, and high quality chemicals
are essential. Experience and ingenuity are important
factors as well. When tweaking a formula or developing a
unique preparation, the compounding pharmacist must
consider physical and chemical properties of both the
active ingredient and excipients, solubility, tonicity,
viscosity, and the most appropriate dosage form or
device for administering the needed medication. Standard
Operating Procedures should be in place, stability
studies should be considered when compounding, and
appropriate potency and sterility testing should be

rectal solutions and suppositories, and other customized
dosage forms. Please contact us to discuss your
