A compounding pharmacy is a pharmacy staffed
Compounding Pharmacies are licensed and accredited as follows:
If you have a problem with a medication, you can ask your doctor to send your prescription to a compounding pharmacy along with instructions on how to reformulate your medication into a form that is made especially for you. The pharmacist in a compounding pharmacy can separate the ingredients of your prescription then recombine them in a more convenient form. You can benefit from the use of a compounding pharmacy in the following situations:
A compounding pharmacy will fully research, standardize, reference and store the formula for its compounded medications in a central database to ensure accurate and consistent ingredients and dosages. This database is available for inspection by state regulators of compounding pharmacies.
If you believe you could benefit from a reformulation of your medication, ask your doctor about having your medication made especially for you at a compounding pharmacy. Your doctor can advise you as to the feasibility of your request and work with you to make taking your medication an easy task. To find out more, speak with someone like Premier Custom Pharmacy.Share

My name is Katie Langer. For a long time, I was bed ridden and I felt like I had no control over my life. I simply went along with what was instructed by my doctor and I didn't ask questions. It wasn't that my doctor wasn't willing to work with me, but I preferred to simply not think about the illness I was suffering from. I didn't realize that some of the symptoms I was suffering from were side effects of my medication and were not normal. After communicating more with my doctor, I was able to alleviate my symptoms. Since then, I've taken an interest in patient-doctor relationships and how to improve them.
