What Is Compounding?
Compounded prescriptions cannot be filled at your typical drugstore, but require a specially-trained pharmacist, working within a specialized, quality-controlled environment.
If you don’t respond to traditional methods of treatment or need a different way to take a medication or a different strength that isn’t manufactured by a drug company, count on the Avera Compounding Pharmacy to create a customized medication that meets your specific needs.
Compounding combines an ageless art with the latest medical knowledge and state-of-the-art technology, allowing specially-trained professionals to:
- Prepare customized strengths
- Combine multiple medications into one dosage form
- Flavor medications
- Eliminate preservatives, dyes, sugar, gluten, lactose or alcohol
- Prepare special formulations
- Make alternative forms of solid medications, such as liquid dosage forms of solid medications
Our compounding professionals can also compound non-sterile medications into:
- Topical creams or gels
