What is Compounding?

Compounding is the Art and Science of Creating Personalized Medications

Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are made based on a practitioner’s prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This method allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient’s specific needs.

Millions of Americans have unique health needs that off-the-shelf prescription medicines cannot meet. For them, customized medicines — prescribed or ordered by licensed prescribers and mixed safely by trained, licensed compounding pharmacists — is the only way to better health.

Compounded prescriptions can be customized to different formulations that may be more efficient or easier to administer and patients are less likely to experience side effects if their prescriptions can be tailored to their specific needs and ensure better patient compliance.

For example, if a patient has difficulty swallowing pills, the compounding pharmacist may be able to formulate the medication as a cream or gel.

Multiple prescriptions can be combined into a single dosage form for convenience and to ensure better patient compliance.

Preservative-free or allergen-free prescriptions can be compounded for sensitive patients. Flavoring can be added to make drops and lozenges more palatable, if desired.

And compounding pharmacies (and pharmacists) adhere to standards and regulations set by the U.S. Pharmacopeia, National Association of Boards and State Boards of Pharmacy for quality assurance and accuracy.
