What is a compounded medication?

April 2, 2018

A compounded drug is prepared by a compounding pharmacy and is tailored to a patient’s specific needs. Here are some examples when a compounded drug may be beneficial:

  • When a drug is not commercially available from a manufacturer
  • Adjust the strength of a medication
  • Avoid unwanted ingredients such as dyes, sugar, preservatives, or gluten
  • Add flavors to make the medication easier to take
  • Change in dosage forms like converting a capsule into a liquid
