Almost everything now can be customized. From your phone’s wallpaper or protecting cover to your car accessories. Even the color of your hair for the next summer. So why not customize medications?
Compounding is the art and science of customizing medications to suit a specific flavor, dosage, etc. Although it’s not common to all drugstores offering pharmacy services, compounding is not contemporary science either. It has been around even before the commercialization of the drugs you familiarly see around in medicine cabinets. When doctors have to produce a unique prescription, these prescriptions have to be compounded by a drugs expert.
Today, due to the wealth of drug merchandise everywhere, the need for compounding has also subsided as people prefer fast and more affordable medications to their needs. However, due to some specific demands and a good client base, the art of compounding remains viable, although not all drugstores offer them.
Fortunately, it’s still part of the services we offer at our drugstore. Our pharmacist is capable of preparing special formulations for your unique compounding needs. Make sure to bring your physician’s prescription when you visit our pharmacy. Because of compounding, dosages can be adjusted, pills can be turned into liquid, even flavors can be added to those icky-tasting drops that your child dreads of taking. You can ask your doctor if compounding is an option for you!
