The art of prescription compounding involves designing specific drug formulations tailored to individual patients and their therapeutic needs. Compounding combines various ingredients to create a finished drug product that uniquely targets a patient’s clinical symptoms/condition.
Examples of drug therapy requiring compounding :
- Patient-specific dosages NOT commercially available.
- Altering a drug formulation to facilitate patient compliance with therapy, e.g., changing dosage form.
- Providing unique condition-specific drug therapies NOT commercially available.
- Drug products NOT commercially available.
