Choice Compounding Pharmacy specializes in formulations for hormone replacement, pain management, veterinary and dermatology.
Compounding is the preparation of customized medications using pure ingredients. Pharmaceutical compounding was the standard method of providing prescription remedies in the 19th and 20th centuries, but with the dawn of mass drug manufacturing in the mid 20th century, the role of pharmacists as preparers of medications swiftly shifted towards that of dispensers of manufactured dosage forms. However, the “one size fits all” methodology is unlikely to meet the needs of all patients.
Over the last decade, the field of compounding has greatly benefited from enhancements in technology, quality control and research methodology. The demand for compounded medications has increased greatly as physicians and patients realize that the limited forms of commercially available drugs do not meet the needs of all patients.
Our compounding specialists can prepare:
- Medications in dosage forms that are not commercially available, such as capsules, transdermal gels, troches and lollipops
- Medications free of problem causing excipients such as dyes, sugar, lactose or alcohol
- Combinations of various compatible medications into a single dosage form for easier administration and improved compliance Veterinary medications
Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians receive special training in compounding techniques from the Professional Compounding Centers of America, allowing them to modify prescribed medications to a specific strength, dosage form or allergen-free formula when a doctor recommends doing so.
