Compounding Services

While compounding practices have been a primary aspect of medication services for centuries, the modern practice is driven by what the medical community calls “patient non-compliance.” Many patients are allergic to preservatives or dyes, or are sensitive to standard drug strengths.

With a physician’s consent, a compounding pharmacist can change the strength of a medication, alter its form to make it easier for the patient to take, or add flavor to make it more palatable (great for veterinary services). Our pharmacist can prepare the medication using several unique delivery systems, such as a sublingual troche or lozenge, a lollipop, or a transdermal gel or cream that can be absorbed through the skin. For those patients who are having a hard time swallowing a capsule, we can make a liquid suspension instead.
