Pharmacy compounding

Traditional pharmacy compounding involves the act of combining, mixing or altering ingredients to prepare a customized medication for an individual patient with a prescription. By definition, pharmacy compounding involves making a new drug for which safety and efficacy have not been demonstrated with the kind of data that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration requires to approve a new drug. Even though the FDA often regards compounded drugs as “unapproved new drugs,” the agency has long recognized that traditional pharmacy compounding serves an important public health function.
