Traditionally filled prescriptions are not appropriate for everyone. Many people have special needs or conditions that necessitate custom compounding. In the mass production pharmaceutical world, compounding is a “lost art,” an increasingly rare specialty. Our compounding techniques are not new; in fact, we handcraft medicines, drugs and prescriptions the way it used to be done.
Who needs custom drugs?
For people who have difficulty taking oral medicines, To fill their prescriptions in the form of transdermal gels (rubbed into the skin), suppositories, liquids or injections.
For people-especially children-who do not like the taste of certain medicines and will avoid taking them, we can add special flavors, like bubblegum, cherry or grape.
For vegetarians and those with special diets, we can fill prescriptions without added preservatives, lactose, dyes, flavors or animal by-products.
