What is Compounding Medication?
Compounding is a completely different scientific approach that addresses to the cause and not the symptoms of the disease. The compounding pharmaceutical preparations (drugs) are customized for each disease and each patients, providing by that way solutions which traditional medications cannot. Dosages, formulas, flavors etc. are adapted accordingly to those individual needs.
What Is the difference between a Traditional and a Compounding Pharmacy?
Traditional and Compounding Pharmacy are completely different. A compound pharmacist has the same skills, degrees, education and licenses to practice profession as a traditional pharmacist but needs more specialized training to learn and practice compounding. In compounding, medication is created ad-hoc, based on the specific needs of each patient and each disease, where traditional medications come fixed from the manufacturer. Moreover, compounding aims at fighting the cause of the disease where traditional medication usually treats the symptoms.

How do you customize medications?
Customization can apply in various ways so to meet a patient’s unique and specific needs. A compounding pharmacist can:
- Adjust dosage for strength or quantity.
- Change the medication’s form i.e. create a liquid instead of pills.
- Exclude non-essential ingredients, like dyes or gluten and add others, like flavor (very important for children meditation).
- Combine medications in one formula…
…and many more!
Why was I prescribed for a compound medication?
Because there was not such a medication in the traditional pharmacy and your doctor wanted an effective tailor-made formula for you and only you. Traditional pharmacies cannot create medication for you, but we can!
