Custom Preparations

What is compounding?

Compounding is the creation of a customized pharmaceutical preparation – a drug – by a licensed pharmacist to meet the unique needs of an individual patient.  

Common reasons for compounding include:

  • The patient has allergies to preservatives, dyes, binders or additives.
  • Treatment requires specific dosage strengths to meet individual goals of therapy.
  • Combining several medications together to make it easier to take or apply
  • Oral or parenteral forms are not tolerable; topical forms such as creams, ointments or gels can be formulated.
  • Adding flavors to make medications taste better.
  • For the veterinarian community, which requires specific dosage regimens and flavors.

The demand for professional compounding has increased as health care professionals and patients realize the potential benefits of customized preparations.
