What is Compounding?
Compounding provides an innovative way for pharmacists to customize medications to fit the needs of their patients. The art of compounding utilizes modern medicine while still holding true to the roots of the profession of pharmacy. Each person is different, that’s why Pharmedico Pharmacy takes a different approach to medicine. Compounding is the mixing of two or more ingredients by a pharmacist to fit the unique needs of a patient. We work with physicians to customize medication for you in our non-sterile compounding lab. We can produce unique dosage forms based on patient preferences and/or restrictions. Many compounds are specialized medication combinations or compounded in other forms that are not otherwise commercially available. Examples include dye-free, preservative-free, alcohol-free, and/or sugar-free forms of medications.
Millions of patients have unique health needs that off-the-shelf, manufactured medications cannot meet. For these patients, personalized medication solutions – prescribed by licensed practitioners and prepared by trained, licensed pharmacists – are the only way to better health. Our pharmacist is trained in compounding a wide variety of ointments, gels, syrups, suspensions, suppositories, capsules and other formulations that can make medications easier to take, address any special health problems, or just simply get you feeling better, faster.
