What is Compounding?

 Compounding is the mixing of drugs by a compounding pharmacist to fit the unique needs of a patient. This may be done for medically necessary reasons, such as to change the form of the medication from a solid pill to a liquid, to avoid a non-essential ingredient that the patient is allergic to, or to obtain the exact dose needed. It may also be done for voluntary reasons, such as adding favorite flavors to a medication.
Why Compounding?

Compounding allows healthcare practitioners to prescribe medication specific to their patient's individual needs. One of the primary benefits of working with a compouding pharmacy is that a
patient is not limited to the commercially available dosages, strengths, and forms; instead, compounded prescriptions can be changed to different formulations that may be more efficient or easier to administer. For example, if a patient has difficulty swallowing pills, the compounding pharmacist can formulate the medication or hormone(s) as a cream or gel, or for sensitive patients who require preservative-free or allergen-free prescriptions, a compounding pharmacist can meet these needs by preparing prescriptions accordingly  .


Dr. David Brownstein, an advocate of compounded prescriptions, points out in a special report in Integrative Medicine that patients need individualized doses of hormones. "Pharmaceutical companies want us to believe that everybody needs the same dose of all medications," he writes. "In truth, everyone has a unique biochemical thumbprint; we don't all need the same dose of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, or even the same amounts of nutrients in foods."

For optimal hormone treatment, a practitioner can fine-tune or modify the dose or prescription of a compounded BHT as an individual's hormonal needs change, or match an individual's preferences and absorbtion abilities. Another advantage to compounded BHT is that multiple hor-mones can be combined in a single dosage form to ensure better patient compliance
