Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients. Its practice dates back to the origins of pharmacy, yet the presence of compounding throughout the pharmacy profession has changed over the years. The pharmacist’s role in preparing medications quickly changed to that of a dispenser of manufactured dosage forms. Within the last two decades, though, compounding has experienced resurgence, as modern technology and innovative techniques and research have allowed more pharmacists to customize medications to meet specific patient needs. Today, an estimated one percent of all prescriptions are compounded daily by pharmacists working closely with physicians and their patients.
Unique medication strengths: A medicine may be available only in one or two strengths. However, a physician may find that the best dose is not one of those. We can prepare a dosage that meets the physician and patients needs. Therefore, there is no need to take too much medicine which could cause adverse effects or too little which may not work for you.

Drug compounding has always been a part of veterinary medicine. Historically, veterinarians have been known for preparing concoctions, mixtures, and remedies for their patients because there were few approved veterinary formulations on the market. Compounding enables practitioners to prescribe and patients to take medicines that are specially prepared by pharmacists to meet patients’ individual needs.
