Compounding is science of creating specific and personalized medicine. It begins with an issue where mass-produced medication causes problems to a patient and the art of compounding needs to help alleviate the problem. Such things like specific flavouring, unique dosage amounts and more have compounding pharmacists that work with doctors to create a customized solution for a patients need.
If a patient has allergies to commonly mass-produced medication or if a patient is not taking their prescribed medication because of an unpleasant side effect, compounding is needed. Also, if you require custom medicine strength and custom dosage forms, compounding can change a patient’s life and the rewards for the pharmacist are great because they helped a patient.
