what is compounding?

Compounding is the art and science of preparing custom medications to meet patients' unique needs and prescribers' exact specifications. The practice dates back to the origins of medicine, although compounding's place in the practice of medicine has changed over the years.

Until the mid-20th century, the majority of prescriptions ordered by doctors were compounded. With the advent of mass drug manufacturing in the 1950s and 1960s, compounding began to decline. The pharmacist's role as a preparer of medications changed to that of a dispenser of mass-manufactured medications in standardized, one-size-fits-all dosages and forms.

Today, doctors are once again seeking more customized solutions for their patients, and leading compounding pharmacies are rising to the challenge. Using state-of-the-art technology and best-practice methodologies, specially trained pharmacists are creating a wide array of innovative, effective preparations, including creams, gels, lozenges, sprays, lacquers and more.
