What Is Compounding?
We like to call compounding personalized or custom meds. As pharmacists, compounding allows us to essentially use everything we know about medicinal chemistry, drug stability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmaceutics, to prepare a custom medication via a prescription from a prescriber for a specific patient or a population of patients with similar conditions that traditional medications typically don’t fully address.
At Webster Pharmacy, we also believe that compounds should be safe and effective, and in order to try to meet that standard we typically prepare compounds that have been shown to be safe and effective even in a small group of patients.
For that reason the content here will be both group specific with evidence that we have found to support the use of these compounds in our practice.
Some of the groups we compound for include:
- Men’s Health
- Women’s Health
- Pediatric Health
- Veterinary Health
Some of the specific prescribers we typically make compounds for include:
- Functional Medicine Practitioners
- Gastroenterologist & Proctologist
- ENT Practitioners
- Urgent Care and Emergency Medicine
