Before the large-scale manufacturing of medications in the 1950s, every pharmacy would be prepare all the medications by compounding the active ingredients into the dosage form needed, whether it being capsules, suppositories or creams. Now in the 21st century, commercially made medications are the norm and compounding medications is a skill and art within the pharmacy community.
Compounded medications are individualized and personalized, just like you. Neither the medication itself nor its dose is limited to what the manufacturers produce. Also, we can customize medications if there are allergies or dietary preferences.
Customizable dosage forms:
- Creams, ointments and gels to be used on the skin
- Capsules or dissolving tablets
- Troches/lozenges, gummies or lollipops
We take the time to provide a quality product and to provide thorough information. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information and to have your compounded medication prepared for you!

Your overall health and well-being are in part determined by your genetic makeup. Similar to how genetics can affect your eye colour, genetics can also affect how you respond to medications. Because of genetic differences, two people can take the same dose of the same drug, but respond in very different ways. For example, the drug might work very well for one person, but not at all for another. Or the drug might cause side effects for one person, but not for someone else.
