Some patients don't respond to traditional methods of treatment, many patients are allergic to preservatives or are sensitive to standard drug strengths. Sometimes they need medicine at strengths that are not manufactured by drug companies, they simply need a different method of ingesting a medication.
Compounding fulfill needs of such patients. It provides an option for physicians and compounding pharmacists to customize an individualized prescription for the specific need of their patient. Compounding provides solutions which are not met by commercial products.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Compounding is the art of preparing a pharmaceutical drug to fit the unique needs of an individual or pet.
Medications can be made in different dosage forms and strengths. The U.S. Pharmacopeia Convention (USP) formally defines compounding as “the preparation, mixing, assembling, altering, packaging, and labeling of a drug, drug-delivery device, or device in accordance with a licensed practitioner's prescription, medication order, or initiative based on the practitioner/patient/ pharmacist/compounder relationship in the course of professional practice.”
A variety of dosage forms include: capsules, suspensions, solutions, topical creams/ointments/gels, vaginal preparations, lollipops, troches, lozenges, nasal and oral sprays, and suppositories.
