What is custom compounding?

Custom compounding is the practice of combining specific ingredients to create personalized medications that are tailored to the needs of a particular patient. Our pharmacists can prepare medications in a wide variety of doses, dosage forms, and with or without certain ingredients, all according to the needs of the patient.

How does custom compounding work?

We work with you and your doctor in order to ensure that your custom compounded medication fits all of your specific needs. After consulting with you and your doctor, we formulate individual medications according to your needs and requirements. For instance, if you are allergic to a certain type of dye that is present in your medications, we can make it without that dye. No matter what your specific needs may be, we can work to find a solution!

What are the benefits of custom compounding?

When it comes to people, everyone is different. So why should all of our health solutions be the same? Unlike one-size-fits-all approaches to health, our custom compounding services consider the unique needs of each patient in order to deliver personalized solutions that present the best chance of success. Plus, custom compounding can even save you money in some cases, as we can create medications with the same active ingredient as big-name brands while offering it at an affordable price. These are just some of the benefits that you can enjoy when you take advantage of our custom compounding services!
