Many times we recommend that our clients have a prescription filled at a “compounding pharmacy”. A compounding pharmacy is a business that prepares prescriptions for individual patients. The advantages are:
– they can customize the dose for individual patients
– they can provide the drug in a different formula so that it can be administered via the skin, as a suppository or some other manner
– they can flavor the medication to make it more palatable and
– they can usually deliver the prescription right to your home.
One additional benefit of compounded drugs is that they may be available at a savings compared to traditional pharmacies.
Since we frequently recommend that prescriptions be compounded, we wanted to provide our clients with a list of some of the pharmacies to whom we frequently refer.
