Pharmaceutical compounding – the creation and dispensing of tailor-made medications – is the root of the pharmaceutical profession and is often symbolised by the mortar and pestle. Compounding allows the pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customise medication to meet the patient’s specific needs.
Patients may need their medication in a dosage form or strength that is not available in a licensed medicine, or may be allergic to an ingredient. In such situations, pharmaceutical compounding provides a tailor-made solution for the patient.
Fagron recognises this need for compounded medications, administered through optimised routes of delivery and delivery systems.
