Compounding

The Best Drug Delivery System Options For Patient & Physician!

Compounding is once again becoming an essential skill of the dedicated pharmacist. Due to the large scale manufacturing of prescription medications, this essential aspect of pharmacy that enables fulfilling individual needs was all but forgotten. 

Our specially trained staff combined with a state of the art  PCAB certified  compounding lab enables Carrollwood Compounding Center to be able to offer the unique advantages of a compounding pharmacy to the most important people we know, YOU, our friends and patients.

While the industry is geared for the needs of the masses, we at Carrollwood Pharmacy are committed to individuals.  Our staff is eager to work with you and your physician to insure that the medication you require is tailored to your specific needs.

Some of the advantages compounding has to offer are:

  • Strengths not commercially available.  Compounding assures all patients that they can have the precise dose they need.
  • Forms not commercially available.  Compounding allows the best drug delivery system options for patient and physician.  Oral, injection, suppository, or transdermal routes are all possible.
  • Provide drugs not currently manufactured or in dosage forms not currently available.
  • Improve or eliminate undesirable flavors.  Increase patient compliance – especially finicky children – by substituting custom-made flavors the kids (and adults) really love!
  • Change the usual route of administration.  Our Compounding pharmacists can alter traditional routes of delivery.  For instance, a flavored sublingual lozenge for a hard-to-swallow pill.  Or a transdermal cream in place of injections.  The possibilities are almost endless!
  • Eliminate preservatives, dyes, and potential allergens.  Folks with asthma or hypoallergenic patients will benefit from prescriptions that are compounded preservative-free or dye-free, or use alternative “fillers.”
  • Sugar intolerance.  Compounded syrups with non-caloric sweeteners help diabetics control blood glucose.
  • Discontinued drugs.  Occasionally, drug companies discontinue production of effective drugs which are no longer profitable to them.  If this happens, our compounding pharmacists can many times duplicate that formula.
