You have probably seen or heard the term compounding pharmacy. In fact, it's pretty hard to miss "Compounding Pharmacy" at the top of our website! But, do you know what pharmacy compounding is, and what the benefits are?
Compounding is when a licensed pharmacist mixes, alters or combines ingredients as directed by a prescription. This allows a patient to receive a medication that is specifically created for their individual needs. Since medicine is not a "one size fits all" field, pharmacy compounding is a very powerful and effective way for patients to receive the best possible medicine for their personal health needs.
Pharmacy compounding is carried out per the instructions of a physician, as directed in a prescription. In this way, your physician and your compounding pharmacist are working together to provide the best possible care for you.
At Town Pharmacy, we are proud of our experience and performance as a compounding pharmacy. This is a service and expertise that sets us apart from other pharmacies in the North Port, FL area. And, it fits perfectly with our philosophy of providing highly personalized customer service.
According to the FDA, "Pharmacy compounding, if done properly, can serve an important public health need if a patient cannot be treated with an FDA-approved medication." For more information about pharmacy compounding from the FDA, please click here.
