What is Compounding?
The simplest way to define Compounding is by associating it with the uniqueness of every patient’s health conditions. We are all different in the pain levels we experience and the symptoms we have to endure with our health issues. We also have different preferences for the form of medication – whether we prefer taking our meds in syrup form rather than in a pill. Because we are all unique, then our medications should also be as unique as we are.
Compounding is the art and science of methodically altering medications to align with the preferences of the patient. The medication is specially prepared with a specific dosage and form based on the unique health conditions of the patient. In fact, because compounding is so versatile, it can be used to re-create phased out commercial medication or formulate entirely new medications based on the patient’s prescription.
