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 the many reasons, many people don't get the searched-for results by mass-produced medications. But a compounding pharmacy is often able to provide a solution.

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 may be life-changing, even lifesaving. And can be a highly rewarding alternative to commercial medicating practitioners, by helping them solve some of health care’s toughest challenges.
