What is Pharmacy Compounding?
Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medication 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.
At NCA Pharmacy, our belief is that everyone is unique and medication therapy should reflect that as much as possible.
Individualized dosages are not only appropriate but many times therapeutically necessary to provide the desired therapeutic effect. Cookie -cutter or a one-size-fits-all approach of medication administration is not the best way to achieve the best outcomes.
Pharmacy compounding allows the doctor to prescribe medications when commercially prepared drugs are not tolerated. Many times the dose of the medication needs to be adjusted to meet the patients' needs, or a better tasting medication is needed to improve medication therapy adherence. Still another factor to consider is administration solutions. For instance, if a patient can’t tolerate an oral preparation, then our compounders can formulate perhaps a topical preparation. In many instances, patients are sensitive or allergic to inactive ingredients in a commercially available product. That’s another area where our experienced compounders create customized medications free from ingredients that cause them ill effects due to the fillers or binders in a formula.
Our Pharmacy specializes in customizing compounded medications to meet the needs of the patient. We take into account the needs of the entire family. Women, Men, Children, Seniors, and your four-legged family members as well.
