What is a compound?

It is a process by which a pharmacist prepares drugs by combining, mixing, or altering ingredients into a pharmaceutical preparation. These preparations are designed to be administered by a route that does not require sterility, in accordance with a practitioner’s prescription drug order.

Why compound?

  • We can tailor the dose and dosage form to meet all needs –including pediatric and vet
  • If you have sensitivies or allergies to some ingredients including; binders, preservatives and dyes
  • We can combine several medications into 1 dosage form!
  • If you can’t take medication how it is available from the manufacturer – we can potentially make it a cream, liquid or other form
  • We can help make medication more palatable, especially in kids and pets
