What is Compounding?

Pharmacy compounding is the ageless art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients with unique needs. The practice dates to the very beginning of the pharmacy profession and was the standard means of providing prescription medications before pharmaceutical companies started mass-producing drugs. Those commercial drugs can no longer meet the needs of all patients individually because they are limited in the strength and dosage forms available. This is due to distribution, storage, stability, and profitability issues.


With new technology and techniques, compounding pharmacists are able to make customized medications to meet the specific needs of their patients. Individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. Our compounding specialists can prepare medications free of problem-causing excipients such as sugar, lactose, dyes, alcohol, or preservatives. Our ultimate goal is to work closely with the health care practitioners to create the best medication for each patient.

Why SandsRx?

  • Compounded prescriptions can be customized to different formulations that are easier to administer. For example, if a patient has difficulty swallowing pills, the medication can be formulated as a cream or gel.
  • Flavoring can be added to make drops and lozenges more palatable.
  • Preservative-free or allergen-free prescriptions can be compounded for sensitive patients such as gluten, dyes, lactose, sugar, corn, or alcohol.
  • Patients are less likely to experience side effects if their prescriptions are tailored to their individual needs.
  • The dose can be fine-tuned as a patient’s needs change or to match a patient’s preferences and absorption abilities.
  • Multiple prescriptions can be combined into a single dosage form for convenience and better patient compliance.
