Compounding Prescriptions: Enjoy this brief history of compounding. The way we create custom
medications today has its roots in ancient civilizations. Prescription compounding techniques
employed today help people from all walks of life get the most from the medications prepared for
Pharmaceutical compounding is the creation of a specific pharmaceutical product designed to suit
a patient’s unique needs. It is a timeless art with ancient roots; in fact hunter-gatherers who gained
knowledge about the medicinal properties of natural substances used pharmaceutical compounding to
prepare medications with precision.
As time passed and civilizations became more organized, scientific thought began to flourish. In places
like Rome, Greece, and Egypt, artisanal chemists gained even more knowledge about natural substances
including plants, minerals, fungi, bacteria, and molds. They may not have had access to microscopes,
and it is safe to say that they probably did not have the same type of scientific knowledge today’s
medical experts have access to; still, they learned which substances worked to promote health and
healing, and they continued to gain expertise in the art of compounding the natural pharmaceuticals
that were available to them. This allowed the earliest pharmacists to ensure the people who came to
them for treatment received the proper dosages.
Drug compounders in search of precious metals and the fountain of youth came to be known as
alchemists. While the secret formulas for creating gold and putting a stop to the aging process were
never discovered, new chemistry techniques were born and people have never stopped benefitting from
the use of these techniques.
Pharmacy compounding as we know it today got its start during the 19 th century. The earliest drugs had
to be carefully compounded – not just to ensure they were as efficacious as possible, but also to make
them more palatable or easier to consume. During the first half of the 20 th century, pharmaceutical
formulations were more complex than ever before, and prescription drugs were more effective than
Thanks to early pharmacists and those who came before them, today’s pharmacy experts are able to
create customized prescriptions of all kinds. Compounding medications is a function that continues
to be fundamental to the pharmacy profession, and the demand for professionally compounded
prescription medications has increased greatly.
Today, compounded prescriptions are available for:

Using a vast wealth of knowledge that has been passed down through the ages combined with the latest
medical knowledge and state-of-the-art technology, our expert pharmacists are able to compound
prescription medications of all kinds. Health care professionals and patients alike enjoy the security
that comes with knowing that there’s no need to settle for mass-produced drugs. When you receive
a compound prescription prepared to your physician’s specifications, you get the proper dosage and
There are many types of patients who benefit from receiving compounded medications:
- Patients requiring limited doses; especially infants
- Patients who require liquids or transdermal gels rather than pills
- Patients requiring allergen-free medications including those without colored dyes or gluten
- Patients who tend to metabolize, absorb or excrete prescription medicines abnormally
- Patients requiring discontinued drugs or drugs that are in short supply
- Patients requiring bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
- Children requiring palatable medications that taste like fruit or candy
- Pets needing special dosages, or requiring medications that taste like their favorite treats. Pet
owners often find liquids or transdermal gels are easier to administer to animals who may
refuse to swallow pills.
As a result of taking personalized compound medications, patients often enjoy a better response to the
prescriptions that are ordered for them. Since we are able to compound medications in dosage forms
that are not commercially available, you receive not just the exact dosage required for the best possible
response to drug therapy, but you receive it in a way that is easy to ingest.
Our compounding professionals can prepare a number of unique dosage forms:
In addition, we can compound prescription medications free of problem-causing excipients. These
- Transdermal gels for external application
- Pleasant-tasting troches or lozenges designed to dissolve easily
- Dye-free prescriptions
- Sugar-free prescription medications including cough syrups and lozenges
- Lactose-free medications
- Alcohol-free medications
Besides having the ability to compound medications that are pleasant-tasting and easier to take, we are
able to create specially compounded prescriptions and medications that are not commercially available.
We take this a step further by creating special prescription compounds that combine compatible
medications into single dose forms that are easier to take. This can improve compliance, particularly in
patients who must take several prescriptions each day.
How Quality Compounding Maximize Therapeutic Outcome
It’s one thing to have access to medication that tastes acceptable and is easy to take; it’s quite another
to have access to medications that work as well as possible. The fact is, not all similar drugs are equal
when it comes to efficacy. While a certain drug therapy may be somewhat beneficial when taken one
way, the benefits can increase greatly if that drug therapy is presented in an individualized compound
designed to maximize the treatment’s therapeutic outcome.
Since the efficacy of all drug formulations are directly related to their preparation, the selection of
your compounding pharmacy is critical. At Trinity Pharmacy, we ensure our compounding pharmacists
and technicians receive ongoing training. In addition, we utilize only the highest-quality compounding
chemicals, and we have invested in state-of-the-art equipment.
We pride ourselves not just on providing a limitless range of compounded prescriptions, but on our
experience as well as our ingenuity. We consider the chemical and physical properties of all excipients
and active ingredients we use, ensuring your prescriptions suit your needs exactly.
Our compounding professionals are capable of formulating suitable medications as sublingual drops,
oral sprays, nasal sprays, lollipops, lozenges, suppositories and rectal solutions, and other customized
dosage forms. Please contact us to discuss your patients’ needs – we’ll be happy to help you create a
customized treatment plan that maximizes drug therapy efficacy.
