Compounded Medications for Humans
You’ve been given a prescription by your doctor and told to take it to a “compounding pharmacy.” The questions arise: “What’s the difference between a regular prescription and this? How expensive will it be? Are compounded prescriptions safe and how do I know for sure? Are all compounding pharmacies the same and how do I pick the right one? Will they really make my prescription right in the pharmacy?”
Compounding pharmacies are able to create customized medication to fit the unique needs of individual patients by combining an array of pharmaceutical-grade medications inside a sterile “clean room.”
