What Is Compounding?

When it comes to medication, every person has specific needs. Before the pharmaceutical industry began mass-producing prescription drugs in standardized forms and dosages, compounding was fundamental to the pharmacist’s profession. It allowed the pharmacists of the past to address the individual needs of the patient through customized medication dosages.

Today, the demand for professional compounding has increased as healthcare professionals and patients realize that the limited options that are commercially available cannot meet the unique needs of every single person. A Miami compounding pharmacy like Marco Drugs & Compounding gives patients the customized options they need to get “just what the doctor ordered.”

Our Miami compounding pharmacy can prepare:

  • Unique medication forms and dosages that fit your individual needs.
  • Medications in dosage forms that are not commercially available, such as
    transdermal gels, troches, chewables, and lollipops.
  • Medications free of problem-causing excipients such as dyes, sugar, lactose, and alcohol.
  • Combinations of various compatible medications into a single dosage form for
    easier administration and improved compliance.
  • Medications that are not commercially available.

Quality Compounding Maximizes Therapeutic Outcomes

Selecting the right Miami compounding pharmacy is critical to your health. Why? Because how well your medication works is directly related to its preparation. The ongoing training required for our pharmacists and technicians, the state-of-the-art equipment we use, and the level of quality we set for our ingredients all translate into a better experience for you, the patient. Great care is needed when modifying a formula or developing a unique preparation. The pharmacist must consider the physical and chemical properties—from solubility and tonicity to viscosity—of the active ingredients as well as the inactive ones, while determining the most appropriate dosage form or device for administering the needed medication. Our experience and ingenuity set our Miami compounding pharmacy apart.
