Compounding pharmacy is the practice of preparing pharmaceuticals with the needs of a specific individual in mind. Most prescription medicines are produced en masse by commercial pharmaceutical companies using standard preparations. While this certainly makes mass sales easier, it does not account for the needs of every individual.
How Can It Benefit You?
There are many situations where the skills of a compounding pharmacist can be of great benefit to you.
Allergies and Intolerance: Many patients have allergies or sensitivities to the dyes or binding agents found in standard preparations. Most prescription medicines can be prepared without these ingredients.
Combined Medications: Some patients find that they have difficulty keeping up with their treatment regimen simply because they have too many different medicines to take every day. If this describes your situation, talk to your doctor about combining medications.
Pediatrics: Many standard preparations are not made with infant or child dosages in mind. Another concern for physicians and parents is the flavor. If an oral medication tastes bad, the child is much less likely to get an effective dose. Flavor can be added to suspension fluids or create topical ointments or creams, making administration easier.
Discontinued Medications: Commercial pharmacies will often discontinue production of medications that are not commonly ordered for cost-effectiveness reasons. This means that treatments used to cure rare disorders or specific maladies must be prepared by a compounding physician as they are not available commercially.
