Nowadays, all medications are mass-produced by big pharmaceutical companies. However, not all commercially available medications are suitable for all patients. This is where compounding comes into place.
Pharmaceutical compounding is the art and science of formulating a personalized medication to meet the needs of an individual patient. Normally, a compound is mixed together with at least 2 or more ingredients to achieve desired strengths and dosages based off of a prescription written by the doctor.
