What is Compounding?
Compounding is the art and science of creating personalized medicine. It all starts with a problem: the child who can’t swallow pills, the patient with a gluten allergy, the much-needed drug that’s in short supply. For whatever reason, many people aren’t served by mass-produced medications. A compounding pharmacy is able to provide a solution.
That’s where compounding pharmacies come in. Special flavorings, unique dosage forms, innovative delivery methods – using these tools and more, compounding pharmacies work with prescribers to fill a gap in health care through customized solutions for specific patient needs.
Compounding is a great option to explore for people who:
Have allergies to common mass-produced medicine fillers (casein, gluten, dyes, etc.)
Aren’t taking medication as prescribed due to unpleasant side effects or lack of improvement
Need custom medicine strengths and dosage forms (like creams or suppositories)
For patients, compounding can be life-changing, even lifesaving. And, it’s highly rewarding for compounding pharmacists and practitioners, helping them solve some of health care’s toughest challenges.
Personalized to Heal Your Unique Needs
At OC Pharmacy we believe compounded medications can be the best possible solution for a variety of conditions in humans and their pets.
A pharmacy can serve as the central healthcare location for a community. Pharmacies are the middleman between the patient, the physician, the insurance companies, and many drug companies and hospitals.
Different from the commercial drug companies, we dispense customized, patient-specific medications. Allowing your patient's health to come first and allowing your practice to be ahead of the curve.
It's Not All Talk...Each custom compound is hand made within our on-site compounding lab.
Since we appreciate the value of maintaining transparent partnerships with healthcare providers and customers, we invite and encourage, you to visit our pharmacy, see our lab, its equipment, and even watch the compounding take place!
We believe you are not a prescription number like they do at big corporate pharmacies.
When you fill your prescription or purchase your over-the-counters at OC Pharmacy, you are joining our family and our belief in patient-centric care. Each and every patient receives the same quality care and time, from a top-quality and caring staff.
