Basics and Benefits of Compounding
Compounding is the art of preparing customized medications.
Compounding allows for increased compliance and ease of administration.
Reasons for compounding:
- Dye or preservative allergy
- Unable to swallow tablets or capsules
- Need non-standard drug strength
- Need for medication no longer commonly available
Compounding provides alternative solutions to problems that cannot be met with the use of commercially available products.
