Superior compounding optimizes Therapeutic Outcomes
How a medication is prepared is directly related to how well that medication performs. This is why
THE COMPOUNDING PHARMACY YOU SELECT IS CRITICAL.
The most reliable pharmacies will have experienced compounding pharmacists and technicians, an ongoing training program, up-to-date and state-of-the-art equipment, and high-quality chemicals. As well, Standard Operating Procedures should be in place, all staff should be well-versed in stability studies, and appropriate potency and sterility testing should be performed on a regular basis. Ingenuity and instinct, paired with knowledge and expertise are also vital.
Consider the following scenario: When tweaking a formula or developing a unique preparation, the compounding pharmacist must consider physical and chemical properties of both the active ingredient and excipients, solubility, tonicity, viscosity, and the most appropriate dosage form or device for administering the needed medication. Only highly-trained pharmacists and staff working with ongoing requests for compounding can offer the level of skill and precision needed to provide ultimate peace of mind.
