“Compounding is the Art and Science of Creating Personalized Medications” PCCA—Professional Compounding Center of America)
Drug Compounding is the solution to a patient’s unique problems and is the process in which a medication’s dosage form and/or dose are customized for a patient at the request of the physician.
Compounded medications are not available from commercial drug manufacturers, but through compounding pharmacies, which uses the knowledge of chemistry and the drug’s properties to provide a formulation suitable for the patient’s needs.
Preparation of these specialized medications requires chemicals and equipment that are not available in most retail pharmacies. Our pharmacists and certified technicians have received extensive training in compounding techniques and have a support network that generates a constant exchange of ideas and innovations. We also use high quality fine chemicals that have undergone unparallel quality control. So when you obtain a customized medication at Allen Family Drug, you can be confident that you are receiving a preparation that will provide optimal therapeutic value.
