Compounding is the preparation of a customized medication to solve a problem or meet a specific patient need. Compounding pharmacists work together with prescribers and their patients to decide on the most appropriate therapy for each individual. For example, if a person is unable to take a medication orally (perhaps due to nausea), we can formulate a transdermal gel to be absorbed through the skin or a suppository for rectal use. Some individuals are unable to take a commercial product because it contains a dye, sugar, alcohol or lactose. We can solve the problem by compounding a medication without the problem-causing additive. If an elderly patient or small child needs a reduced strength of medication or is unable to swallow a tablet, we can compound a pleasantly flavoured liquid that can be easily administered. We compound for pets as well. Compounding requires specialized equipment and bulk chemicals that are not available in most pharmacies. Our pharmacists have received extensive training in modern compounding techniques and regularly attend continuing education seminars. By combining the ageless art of compounding with the latest medical knowledge and state-of-the-art technology, we can offer practical solutions for our patients’ medication problems.
