Customized Prescription Drugs
The pharmacists at Menges & Curtis are specially-trained in the art and science of creating customized prescription drugs, otherwise known as compounded medications. This unique way of tailoring a medicine to a patient’s specific needs is useful for adults, children and pets alike.
The compounding of medication dates back to the early days of pharmacy, when a chemist (as pharmacists were once called) would prepare a mixture of herbs or chemicals to aid in healing a patient. Nowadays, the modern compounding pharmacist uses state-of-the-art equipment and stringent safety protocols to create targeted and effective medications to suit the individual needs of a patient.
