History of compounding

At one time, nearly all prescriptions were compounded. With the advent of mass drug manufacturing in the 50’s and 60’s, compounding rapidly declined. However, the need for personalized medicine never really went away. Today, we recognize the importance of custom made medications and the significance of providing customized solutions to meet our patients’ individual needs.

Do compounded medications require FDA approval?

The FDA approval process is intended for mass-produced drugs made by manufacturers. Because compounded medications are personalized for individual patients, the federal government has approved the use of compounded medications for an individual patient receiving an individual prescription from an individual prescriber. The chemicals used in the compounding progress must come from an FDA-registered facility and already have another dosage form approved by the FDA or contain a USP or NF monograph.

Does my prescriber know about compounding?

Prescription compounding is a rapidly growing component of many physician’s practices, but some may not realize the full extent of the benefits that compounding can provide. Ask your provider about compounding or feel free to give us a call and we can help you get in touch with a provider dedicated to providing individual customized solutions for you. We believe through the triad relationship of the patient, prescriber and pharmacist, we can work together to solve unique problems.
