What is Compounding?
Individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patientPharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are “made from scratch” – individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient to better meet their needs. Compounds can be prepared in a variety of forms including injectables, topical creams, transdermal gels, liquids, capsules, pellets, and more. Flavorings can make them more palatable and through reformulation, allergens and unwanted ingredients can be removed. Specific formulations are prepared through collaboration between our pharmacists, the physician, and the patient to provide solutions geared toward enhancing patient health with customized medications while ensuring exceptional customer service and up-to-date information

Over the last 10 years, pharmacy boards around the U.S. have adopted the standards as law. USP <797> has been updated several times, most recently in 2012. Wells Pharmacy Network adheres to all safety, testing, and quality standards and regulations, demonstrating our commitment to our patients and physicians.
