Q: What exactly are compounded medications and how can they be beneficial?A:
Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications to meet the individual needs of children, adults and animals. Whether it’s an allergy to a dye or ingredient, the need for a specific strength, or the preference of a different dosage form, compounding pharmacists can provide patients with solutions to various medication needs. These medications are “made from scratch” where individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage your body needs. For patients where manufactured medications cannot help their treatment, pharmacy compounding—prescribed by a licensed physician and compounded by a trained licensed pharmacist—is the only way to better health.
