What is Compounding?

PCNZ Custom MedicinesPharmaceutical compounding is the art & science of preparing medicines from basic raw materials. Historically many pharmacies used to prepare various medicines in the back of their premises before these medicines became mass produced by drug companies. Compounding is still important today because it fills a niche in the market for customers who need a medicine produced in a dose or form that is not readily available. For example we can make a liquid form of a medicine for someone who has difficulty swallowing commercially available tablets. Most of our medicines can be supplied in a form (liquid, cream, powder for example) that suits the customer's needs. We compound section 29 prescription products but also make dietary supplements which are available without a prescription.
