A compound is a product that the pharmacy staff makes by mixing two or more ingredients together. Combined, they become a medicinal blend that is not already commercially available. Doctors often write compounded prescriptions in order to get a combination of ingredients that is not available as a pre-made product.
Pharmacists may recommend compounding a medication to help meet individual
patient specific needs, such as compounding a medication into a liquid form for a child.
