What is Medication Compounding?
Compounding, although simply put, is the manipulation of a prescription drug. Compounding is useful when a medication’s dosage, strength, or consistency is not commercially available, but is needed by a patient. It should only be prescribed by a licensed practitioner. Manipulation of a drug could include mixing, diluting, concentrating, flavoring, or changing a drug’s dosage form to accommodate a specific patient’s health needs. Our pharmacy technicians are trained on how to compound medications accurately and effectively for optimal results.
Compounding for pets may be necessary when no approved drug is available to treat a pet’s condition or when approved drugs need to be modified to treat the patient. Learn more about our Pet Medicine services.
