Compounding (Non-Sterile)

Compounding is a combination of art and science to create custom, personalized medicine. Compounding involves formulating a particular pharmaceutical product in order to fit a patient’s unique need. Compounding can involve mixing two or more medications, making a liquid from a solid medication, making a cream using a powdered medication, flavoring medications, and more.


It is very rewarding for the pharmacists and practitioners who help overcome problems commonly encountered with mass-produced prescription medications including:


  • Making a different dosage form for a child who can’t swallow pills.

  • Formulating a medication for a patient allergic to common medicine fillers like gluten, casein, and dyes.

  • Customizing a medication for a person whose typical drug is in short supply.

  • Creating a different dosage form for people experiencing unpleasant side effects.

  • Making custom medicine strengths and dosage forms.


A compounding pharmacy can provide a solution for patients who are not satisfied with regular pharmacy prescription medications.
