What is Pharmaceutical Compounding?
Pharmaceutical compounding has a very long and respected history. With roots in ancient times, the art of compounding involves combining natural ingredients with other powders and liquids to produce a medication/solution specific to the needs of the patient. Pharmaceutical compounding was the only means of dispensing medication up until the 20th century. Drug manufacturers eventually came in to place, producing drugs on a much greater scale then what pharmacists could do. By 1960, commercial medications became the norm. In recent times, however, and over the past several years, the art of compounding has returned with physicians, clinicians and patients realizing the many benefits of customized medications.
