Compounding is the practice of preparing customized medications to fit the unique needs of a patient.
Compounding has been a part of pharmacy in America since the early 1800s when the first drugstores opened. Well into the mid-1900s, compounding was necessary for nearly half of all prescriptions. That changed during the Industrial Revolution when mass production transformed pharmacy into the industry we see today. Despite changes in the field, compounding has continued to grow and evolve.
With today's high-tech equipment and intensely specialized training, modern compounding is experiencing a rebirth. Unsatisfied with the "one-size-fits-all" approach of mass-produced drugs, more and more healthcare providers recognize the benefits of pharmacy compounding and look to prescribe custom medications.
The safety and efficacy of any compounded formulation is directly related to its preparation, which is why the careful selection of your compounding pharmacy is critical. Compounding Docs Pharmacy has earned the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board’s (PCAB) Seal of Accreditation for meeting and/or exceeding national quality standards for sterile and non-sterile compounding. The PCAB® Seal of Accreditation is a system of quality and safety standards created by the leading experts in the compounding pharmacy field today.
The professionals at Compounding Docs Pharmacy can formulate medications with customized dosage forms such as sublingual drops, oral and nasal sprays, lollipops, rectal solutions and suppositories, and others. Please contact us to discuss your needs and medication challenges.
