Pharmaceutical compounding is the age-old practice of creating particular pharmaceuticals to meet individual needs. Prior to the advent of mass manufacturing of medication, all pharmaceuticals were produced in this manner. Even ancient hunter-gatherer societies – with their knowledge of the medical properties of certain plants, animals, molds, fungus, bacteria, and inorganic minerals – created custom compounds for religious, grooming, and health reasons. The practice of pharmaceutical compounding has remained to the modern day despite mass production of pharmaceuticals.
Today, the compounding pharmacist serves an important role within the community. Although most people get the medications they need “off the shelf,” there are a large number of people for whom the widely available versions of certain medicines are inappropriate. For these patients, the compounding pharmacist creates custom pharmaceuticals in his lab, where he can control the individual ingredients and delivery systems.
The compounding pharmacist performs the following specialized tasks to meet individual patient needs
- Produces medications in the appropriate dosage, which may differ from the mass-produced form.
- Changes the dosage forms – topical gels, creams, suppositories, liquids, pills, etc. – to meet patient needs.
- Removes harmful dyes, alcohols, sugars, and preservatives from the active ingredients in medications.
- Combines multiple medications for ease of delivery.
- Provides medications that are no longer produced on a mass scale.
In addition to the above services, we also produce pharmaceuticals in custom flavors to make it easier for your children and pets to take the medications they need.
