What is compounding? Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are “made from scratch”. Individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This method allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient’s specific needs. Prescription medications may be made and dispensed to a patient only upon receipt of a patient specific prescription from a prescriber.
