The Art of Compounding - Why Compound?

pic1Drugs for certain conditions aren’t made by manufacturers. But even if a drug is mass-produced for a medical condition, patients might need a custom-made version for a variety of reasons.

Sometimes a patient cannot use the standard version of a drug because of an allergy to one of its ingredients. If that ingredient is “inactive,” meaning it has no therapeutic role, we might make a similar drug without that ingredient.

In some cases, the right dosage strength is not readily available for a patient. A child, for example, would usually need a smaller dosage than an adult. Commercial products are often not available in child-sized portions.

Commercially available drug products often need to be transformed into a different form for children and the elderly. People in these age groups can have difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules. We can make the drug in a powder, liquid, lozenge, suppository, or other delivery form.

Children and pets may refuse to swallow a medicine if it tastes bad. We can add flavorings to medicines to make them more palatable.

Compounding pharmacies work closely with physicians and healthcare providers of all kinds and continue to play a vital role in patient compliance with drug regimens.
