What is Compounding?

Compounding is the art of creating a medication for a specific patient by combining pure raw materials. It allows pharmacists to provide elegant medications that are personalized to a patient's specific and unique needs.


All compounds at Lebanon Shops Pharmacy are created and crafted by a specially-trained pharmacist.  

Common Reasons a Prescription May Need to Be Compounded: 

  • The medication is not commercially manufactured

  • The medication requires a different strength, route, or formulation than what is available on the market 

  • The medication contains an allergen or other ingredient that would prevent a patient from using the commercially prepared product or cause increased side effects if used

  • The patient is not able to use the manufactured dosage form (e.g., the patient is unable to swallow, cannot take pills, etc.)

  • The prescriber wants to combine multiple medications into one to provide more benefit for the patient 

  • The prescriber prefers to treat a specific area topically, rather than systemically or to prevent side effects associated with taking a medication by mouth 

  • The medication is temporarily or permanently backordered and is unavailable on the market 

We are able to meet the needs of our patient through compounding by:

  • Adding flavor to a medication to make it more palatable 

  • Customizing the strength or dose 

  • Reformulating a medication to allow for an alternative administration through the use of flavored liquids, topicals, suppositories, and more

  • Changing the medication to exclude problem-causing, nonessential ingredients, such as gluten, lactose, fragrance, or dyes

  • Creating animal-friendly formulations to make administering your pet's medications easier 

Our top priority

is to provide our patients with the highest quality compounds and pharmacy services. Our compounds are created by pharmacists and made from the highest-quality ingredients available. We strive to create the medication that will best suit your needs and will work with you and your prescriber to achieve that.
