What is Compounding?

Pharmaceutical compounding is the science of the mixing of medicines and pharmaceutical drugs to fit the unique needs of the patient.

Pharmaceutical compounding:

  • Enables a trained pharmacist to prepare a tailor-made formulation for a patient
  • Allows a medical practitioner to prescribe an exact dose of a medication for his/her patient, instead of a one dose tablet/capsule fits all approach
  • Allows changing a medication from a solid tablet or capsule into a liquid
  • Allows the avoidance of a non-essential ingredient to which a patient may be allergic,  e.g. lactose.
  • Enables the improvement of the palatability of a medication by the addition of “favourite” flavours
  • Allows the preparation of medications which have been previously discontinued.
