Shelton Pharmacy is a compounding pharmacy. But what is compounding?
Compounding is the process whereby licensed pharmacists, and certified technicians under their supervision, utilize scientific research in combination with innovative technology to carefully prepare customized medications to meet specific patient needs and solve medication problems. Compounding pharmacies help thousands of patients and practitioners by formulating medications that are not commercially available in the strength or dosage form that would be most beneficial for that particular patient. For example, we can compound topical and transdermal medications that can be used to treat local or systemic problems. Transdermal medications are highly requested for pain management, as well as for patients who are unable to take medications orally. Oral medications can be flavored for each patient and we can create dosage forms such as lollipops, and suppositories.
