Compounding is the art of combining two or more ingredients to make a specialized medication for a particular patient. Some patients are unable to take a regularly manufactured medication for different reasons. For example, unavailable strength, product is out of production, allergy to inert ingredient. This is a small example of the many reasons a compounded medication may be needed. Specially trained pharmacists and technicians put the compounds together.
KPHC is a proud member of the Professional Compounding Centers of America or PCCA. We use them to acquire formulations or answer professional questions drawing upon their expertise in the compounding field. We compound for both human and veterinary usage. Examples of compounded prescriptions are: thyroid replacement hormones, dermatological creams and ointments, hormone replacement products and specialized drug flavorings.
