What is Compounding?

Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients (humans and animals). Compounded medications are made based on a practitioner’s prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient’s specific needs.

The pharmacists at Apothecary Options have received special training and advanced coursework in compounding. We only use FDA-approved ingredients, which we purchase directly from a handful of reputable, FDA-licensed, US suppliers.
