What is Compounding?
Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are made based on a practitioner's prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This method allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient's specific needs.
What Kinds of Prescriptions Can Be Compounded?
Compounded prescriptions are ideal for any patient requiring unique dosages and/or delivery forms. Compounds can take the form of creams, lotions, gels, syrups, suppositories, and capsules.
Is Compounding Safe?
Compounding is done widely throughout the practice of pharmacy, from hospitals to nuclear medicine. Compounded prescriptions must be prescribed by a licensed practitioner and compounded by a licensed pharmacy.
