At Medicine Chest Pharamacy we get excited about tailoring your medications, as we know it can really improve your quality of care.  Compounding can involve simply changing the form a medication comes in, from tablet to liquids, or can become much more advanced.  Often compounding goes back to taking the raw ingrediants and putting them in a combination and form that works for a specifice adult, child, infant or animal.  These raw ingreditants are put together into different delievery methods such as:

  • Compoundingcreams
  • gels
  • powders 
  • lotions
  • nasal sprays
  • aerosols
  • lollipops
  • supositories
