An art which makes the pharmaceutical profession indispensable



Professional compounding is the essence of the pharmaceutical professional's new practices. By preparing a personalized form or dosage of medication, the pharmacist underlines importance of his/her profession. He then gives a better follow-up to his patient's special needs and to the doctor's requirements.

Being the ultimate authority for the compatibility of the medication, the pharmacist and his assistants are offering a medical expertise doctors cannot ignore. Certain drugs are not available on the market. Occasionally, doctors call a pharmacist to ask whether he could supply them with a sterile medication, or compound one in a liquid form or as a suppository, when those products are only available in a tablet or capsule form.

Our pharmaceutical expertise is the number one road for doctors to obtain the desired mixture of medications formulated in a manner specially adapted to their individual patient. It is not just a matter of executing a prescription, but rather to personalize the preparation and presentation of the product, affixing precise instructions on the package and informing the patient on the best way to use it.

To reformulate a drug from A to Z does not mean that modern serial production methods are not efficient and appropriate. Rather, in certain cases, the return (back to future) to compounded preparations gives a better answer to the patients specific needs. Some of them cannot swallow tablets or capsules, others are rebuffed by the bitter taste of a liquid medication, others are allergic to one of the medication's components.

By just adding a flavor chosen by the patient, the most rebuffing medication can become easy to ingest. On the long run, is there a more expensive medication than the one you cannot take, that you have to throw away?  Through professional compounding, those difficulties being overcome. Professional compounding gives an adequate personalized approach to the customer's specific needs in accordance with the doctor's prescriptions, thus making their life a lot easier.

To develop this professional ability, pharmacists are investing countless hours in research, teaching and chemical analysis of the medications.
