Often times a patient cannot receive proper medication with commercially manufactured drugs and will require a special combination of medicine.
Pharmacies who employ trained pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are able to compound medications and create unique drugs for patients.
These pharmacies must follow standards set by the United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) that are enforced by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Compounding facilities require cleanrooms, laminar airflow stations, ante rooms, and sterile environments.
What Is Compounding Pharmacy?
Pharmacy compounding is the science and art of preparation medication specific to a patient when commercially available drugs can't meet patient's specific medication needs. The ingredients are mixed together based on dosage and strength to meet patient's specific medicinal needs.
The patient would need ingredients compounded when:
- Patient is allergic to one of the ingredients found in commercial drug
- Or a child needing a small dosage of a drug made with adult-dosage
In such cases, the compounding pharmacy will make the medicine in the proper dosage, strength without the ingredient(s) the patient is allergic to.
