What is Compounding?

Compounding is the preparation of customized medications, which are not commercially available. Before mass production of medication became widespread, compounding was a routine activity among pharmacists. Now it is far less common and requires chemicals and equipment that is not available to all pharmacies.
Here at Pill Box, we have state of the art equipment and our pharmacists & technicians have undergone extensive additional training in compounding techniques.
Compounding allows a practitioner to prescribe, and a pharmacist to either make a customized medication that is not commercially available or transform an available medication into a unique dosage form to meet specific patient needs. The possibilities to all of your healthcare needs are endless.

Why Is Compounding Necessary?

Compounding preparations are especially beneficial to:

  • Patients requiring limited dosage strengths that are not commonly available.
  • Patients needing a different dosage form, such as turning a pill into a liquid or transdermal gel.
  • Patients requiring an allergen-free medication, such as gluten, sugar or dye-free.
  • Patients who need a medication that has been discontinued by pharmaceutical manufacturers.
  • Supply shortage of a medication.
  • Children who may be resistant to take their medicine due to disliking the flavor or texture.
  • Veterinary medicine, for a change in your animals medication strength, dosage form, or to simply add a flavor more palatable to the animal like fish, beef, chicken and more.
  • Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for both men and women.

Flavor Rx

With our special Bitterness Suppressor, Sweetening Enhancer and a blend of natural and artificial flavors, We can add a little fun to the process of getting better while masking the unpleasant taste that normally discourages you or your child from taking medicine. One important thing to keep in mind.  While our child-approved flavors will help the medicine go down, there’s no mistaking them for candy.  That means you’ll have peace of mind knowing your child will still understand the difference between better-tasting enhanced medicines and real sweet treats.
