Compounding is the Art and Science of Creating Personalized Medications

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

A Brief History of Compounding

At one time, nearly all prescriptions were compounded. With the advent of mass drug manufacturing in the 1950s and ’60s, compounding rapidly declined. The pharmacist’s role as a preparer of medications quickly changed to that of a dispenser of manufactured dosage forms, and most pharmacists no longer were trained to compound medications. However, the “one-size-fits-all” nature of many mass-produced medications meant that some patients’ needs were not being met.

Innovative Compounding Technology and Techniques Meet Patient Needs

Fortunately, compounding has experienced a resurgence as modern technology and innovative techniques and research have allowed more pharmacists to customize medications to meet specific patient needs.

Highly Trained Rx Express Compounding Pharmacists can now personalize medicine for patients who need specific:

  • Strengths
  • Dosage forms
  • Flavors
  • Ingredients excluded from medications due to allergies or other sensitivities

  • ...but it just brings to light that this is the first time we've had to deal with that and I really appreciate how great you run your pharmacy. Normally that was a weekly or almost daily thing with some of the other compounders. So thank you so much!

  • Most patients don't realize that there is a vast difference in skill and training in compounding pharmacists and thus a vast difference in quality of products compounded and advice given. Ray at Rx Express has the highest quality certifications and ratings and continues his education far above and beyond the minimum requirements. Worth the trip and recommend with the highest regard.
