What is Compounding?
- Have allergies to common mass-produced medicine fillers (casein, gluten, dyes, etc.)
- Aren’t taking medication as prescribed due to unpleasant side effects or lack of improvement
- Need custom medicine strengths and dosage forms (like creams or suppositories)
Compounding is very personal for patients, who know just how powerful personalized medicine can be. Their stories are ones of new beginnings and happier endings. Stories of strength, comfort and confidence. Stories of hope. Here are just a few.
