What are the Advantages to Compounding and How Can it Benefit Me?

Some advantages of compounding are improving patient compliance and by decreasing side effects - by changing the dosage strengths of medication with the approval of the physician, removing dyes and/or fillers, or changing the medication delivery system. Medication delivery systems available by compounding include lollipops, gummy bears, sublingual troches or lozenges, suspensions, injectables, ophthalmics, oral rinses, nasal sprays and rinses, and transdermal gels and creams.
