Compounding

Spring Valley Family Pharmacy offers many unique and individualized services, including compounding. Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are made based on a

practitioners prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This method allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient’s specific needs.

NOTE: Compounded medications are personalized for individual patients. The Federal government has approved the use of compounded medications for individuals who have been given a prescription for that specific compounded medication.

We are a compounding pharmacy, which means we make custom medication tailored to your needs. For example:

  • If you are allergic to an inactive ingredient, such as a preservative or dye, our pharmacist can make that medication without that ingredient.

  • If your child cannot swallow pills, we can make a liquid option.

  • If you take hormones, your body may react better to bioidentical hormone therapy.

Talk to our pharmacist about using compounding to tailor your medication to your unique needs. Together with your doctor, we can find a treatment that works for you.
