Compounding is the science of making a customized medication to meet each individual patients needs.
Whereas most mass produced medications are made in bulk by large pharmaceutical companies and are well tolerated by most patients, in some instances these medications may not be well tolerated or may not be compatible with some patients.
A trained compounding pharmacist makes a customized medication, according to the physician’s prescription to suit a patient’s individual needs.
- The patient requires a customized dose
- The patient has an allergy to a particular ingredient in a medication
- The patient has had difficulty taking the medication
- The patient requires a discontinued medicine
