Compounding is a service offered by relatively few pharmacies due to its complexity, the need for highly specialized equipment, and the time/experience needed to ensure it is executed properly. Finlandia Pharmacy provides compounding services in both the conventional (medical) pharmacy and herbal dispensary.
Compounding is best described as custom delivery of a medicine, formulated or “compounded” to fill the specific strength/desired delivery system for an individual person.
For example. if your physician wishes you to have a drug blended into a transdermal cream, as opposed to given orally, we are able to do this for you. We also provide compounding in the form of sub-lingual troche, suppository or lollipop. On-site compounding also means we can omit specific substances, such as lactose and other sugars, if they pose a problem for you. We use only the highest quality ingredients during the preparation of compounds. Our modern facility also incorporates a sterile compounding room.
