Compounded medications are made specifically for you in a pharmacy to fill the prescription your provider wrote for you. It was specially made to meet your individual needs. For this reason, no standardized information or literature is available with your prescription. If you have not done so, please discuss this medicine with your provider to ensure that you understand (1) why you have been prescribed a compounded medicine, (2) how to properly take this medicine, and (3) the interactions, if any, this medicine may have with any other medicines you are taking.
Compounding is a long-standing pharmacy practice that allows providers to treat their patients’ individual needs without being restricted only to off-the-shelf medicines or devices. This medicine was prepared in a compounding pharmacy to meet the specifications ordered by your provider.
