Compounding is the Art and Science of Creating Personalized Medications
Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are made based on a practitioners prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient’s specific needs.
New standards implemented by the Ontario College of Pharmacy have set the bar for compounding pharmacies very high. These strict set of guidelines serve to protect our patients and ensure the finished products are safe, accurate and effective. Only certain pharmacies with proper equipment, education and training will meet these new standards. This ensures you will receive quality products formulated with the utmost care.
