What is Compounding Pharmacy?

Compounding, simply put, is the mixing of drugs by a compounding pharmacist to fit the unique needs of a patient. This may be done for medically necessary reasons, such as to change the form of the medication from a solid pill to a liquid, to avoid a non-essential ingredient that the patient is allergic to, or to obtain the exact dose needed. It may also be done for voluntary reasons, such as adding favorite flavors to a medication.

Why have I not heard of Compounding before?

Before mass production of medications became the norm, compounding was a routine activity among pharmacists. Community pharmacists who have experience with compounding techniques are now less common, largely due to huge pharmaceutical companies having monopolies on generic drugs. In fact, compounding has moved to the forefront of drug administration in recent years, as physicians and patients become more informed and educated in the specifics of treatment based on individual metabolisms and ailments.
