What is Personalized Medication Compounding?
Compounding is the art and science of preparing custom medications from raw ingredients, pursuant to a physician’s prescription. Before mass pharmaceutical production, pharmacists compounded medications “from scratch” to meet each patient’s specific needs. This art and science allowed the pharmacist and physician to increase or decrease doses, eliminate dyes or inactive ingredients which the patient may be allergic to, and many more. Today, most chain pharmacies do not compound because of either a lack of skill, knowledge, unwillingness to take the time, and because of the profitability of mass production. At Summerwood pharmacy, we believe that bigger is not always better. Our philosophy lies in the fact that everyone is different and unique, and we choose to take the time to accommodate all your needs.[/column]
