Compounding

Sometimes the way you take your medicine is just as important as what you’re taking, which is why our Affiliated Pharmacies offer compounding services. As described below, compounding refers to the patient-specific preparation of medication. For example, a pill is not the best form of medicine for an upset stomach, especially if our compounding pharmacy can offer you a gel that will rid you of the ailment by simply applying it on your skin.

At WheelHeathcare, our pharmacists use state-of-the-art technology with FDA-approved chemicals so that your finished medication meets the doctor's exact specifications.


What is Compounding?

Compounding combines an ageless art with the latest medical knowledge and state-of-the-art technology to customize medication to meet patient-specific needs. It is the foundation of the pharmacy profession and was at one time the standard way to provide prescription medications - which was before the pharmaceutical mass-production made its appearance on the healthcare landscape.

Benefits of Compounding

Compounding can be as simple as flavoring a medication or as complex as taking the contents of a tablet and suspending them in a liquid or cream. These, along with patient-specific dosage, are among the most valuable benefits our compounding pharmacy offers to its patients. Additionally, we specialize in providing medication that are in short supply or backordered, discontinued, or otherwise commercially unavailable to help avoid interruption in patient care.
