What is Compounding?
Compounding is “original pharmacy.” It is the combination of two or more ingredients per your practitioner’s prescription to suit YOUR unique needs and create a customized medication. Pharmacy Care of Tennessee is very proud to provide non-sterile (no ophthalmic or injectable products) compounding services to our patients.
Compounded medications can address a host of medical conditions including:
- Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for women and men
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Pain management
- Pet medications
- Pediatric solutions
- Oral pain
- Dry mouth
- Wound care
Are pills or capsules hard for you, a family member, or a pet to swallow? As a compounding pharmacy we are able to produce unique dosage forms of medications based on your preferences and/or restrictions. Examples include:
- Rapid dissolve tablets (RDTs)
- Topical creams
Compounding can even eliminate certain allergens for sensitivities that are commonly found in manufactured medications because we can make dye-free, preservative-free, alcohol-free, and/or sugar-free forms of medications.
