Customizing preparations, mixing, assembling, packaging, or labeling of a drug or device as the result of a practioner, patient, pharmacist relationship in the course of professional practice, or for the purpose of or as an incident to, research, teaching, or chemical analysis and not for sale or dispensing. Can Any Pharmacy Compound? Preparation of these specialized products requires chemicals and equipment that are not available in most pharmacies.  Our pharmacists have received extensive additional training in compounding techniques.  We have a support network that generates a constant exchange of ideas, innovations and techniques involving compounding, and includes several Ph.D. chemists and pharmacists who can research the feasibility of new formulations.  There are several reasons why pharmacists compound prescription medications; yet, the most important one is patient non-compliance.  Many patients are allergic to preservatives or dyes, or are sensitive to standard drug strengths.  With a physician's consent, a compounding pharmacist can change the strength of a medication, alter its form to make it easier for the patient to ingest, and add flavor to it to make it more palatable.  The pharmacist also can prepare the medication using several unique delivery systems, such as a sublingual troche or lozenge, a lollipop, or a transdermal gel.  Or, for those patients who are having a difficult time swallowing a capsule, a compounding pharmacist can make a suspension, topical cream, or suppository instead.  Often parents have a tough time getting their children to take their medicine because of the taste.  A compounding pharmacist can work directly with the physician and the patient to select a flavoring agent, such as vanilla butternut or tutti-frutti, that provides both an appropriate match for the medication's properties and the patient's taste preferences.  Compounding pharmacists also have helped patients who are experiencing chronic pain.  For example, arthritic patients who cannot take certain medications due to gastro-intestinal side effects.  Working with their physician, a compounding pharmacist can provide them with a topical preparation with the anti- inflammatory or analgesic their doctor prescribed for them.  Drug Information NORDIC NATURALS | ORTHO MOLECULAR | PURE ENCAPSULATIONS| METAGENICS | TRADITIONAL MEDICINALS All rights and materials reserved 2015 TNT Pharmacy Medical Information Tips in choosing a Compounding Pharmacy SLOS Smith-Lemli-Opitz Syndrome Local Hospitals
