Pharmacy compounding is “the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients” – a practice whose origins date back thousands of years. Preparing custom medications (rather than filling a prescription with pre-manufactured medicines) enables pharmacists to:
– adjust the standard strength of a medication
– change its form to make it easier to ingest
– add flavor to make it more palatable
– eliminate preservatives and dyes
At MacDonald’s Prescriptions, we understand that every patient’s needs are unique. Some people may be allergic to the dyes found in certain medications. Others may have difficulty swallowing pills, or require a different dosage strength than is found in commercially available medicines. And children and animals often refuse to take prescriptions that taste bitter. Compounding gives us the flexibility to prepare medications that take these special needs into account – so you and your loved ones can feel better sooner.
