Why Compounding?

Compounding is the preparation of a customized medication by a pharmacist in accordance with a doctor's specifications to meet a patients' specific needs.

Some people are unable to use the manufactured form of a medication due to excipient sensitivities, allergies, dosage form, taste, etc. In some cases a manufacturer has discontinued a medication you need. We solve these problems through the science of compounding. We can compound most medicines into a variety of dosage forms including suspensions, solutions, capsules, creams, chews, lollipops and more. The strength of your medication can be tailored to fit you rather than the average patient. Your specific needs can be addressed.

We bill many insurances and for those we don't, we provide you with a pre-filled claim form to submit. Feel free to contact us by phone, email or visit our store in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.
