Compounding Medications

Compounding Medication

Compounding is the art of preparing a custom drug using pure, pharmaceutical grade raw materials/products to meet a patient’s needs and in agreement with a physician’s prescription. At Hill Country Apothecary, we address the needs of those who need compounded medications in the Austin area, or, individualized dosage forms that may help improve patient therapy compliance. A thorough preliminary consultation with the patient may help us determine how to start.

Do you or someone you know have difficulty taking medication? Many people experience issues such as these:

  • Stomach upset when taking oral medication
  • Reluctance to take medication due to its taste
  • Difficulty swallowing pills
  • Requiring a different dose of medicine than what is commercially available
  • Patients who don’t want to take medication at all, especially children or pets

A compounding pharmacist may be able to provide solutions for your body’s unique requirements. Working closely in a “triad” of patient, prescriber, pharmacist, we can make prescriptions more palatable and cut out fillers that person may be sensitive to. Tastier, allergen-free medicine means better patient compliance. 

A variety of dosage forms include: capsules, liquids, topical creams/ointments, vaginal preparations, lollipops, troches, and suppositories can be compounded to meet each individual need.
