Compounding combines an ageless art with the latest medical knowledge and state-of-the-art technology, allowing specially trained professionals to prepare customized medications to meet each patient's specific needs. Preparation of these specialized medications requires chemicals and equipment that are not available in most pharmacies. Our pharmacist has received extensive additional training in compounding techniques and has a support network that generates a constant exchange of ideas & innovations. You can count on our pharmacy team that has fifteen years experience in compounding. Compounding is a means to an end. We work together with prescribers to solve medication problems by compounding specialized medications which meet the unique needs of each patient or animal.
At Westminster Family Drug, we are committed to providing you with medications that meet your unique health needs. Sometimes, patients require medications to be blended in a specific way. This process is referred to as compounding and it is necessary for a variety of reasons, including:
- To change the form of a medication from a pill to a liquid, or gel.
- To prevent an allergic reaction by removing a non-essential ingredient such as dyes, sugar, lactose, or alcohol.
- To provide a specific dosage of a particular ingredient.
- To add flavor to a medication that is otherwise difficult for a patient to ingest.
