Compounding

Every patient is an individual with special health-care needs. Custom prescription compounding is a practice that recognizes those individual needs and prepares custom prescription solutions to suit each individual.

Compounding is the process of combining two or more drugs to create a custom medication to tailor to an individual's needs. Licensed pharmacists, physicians, and outsourcing facilities are able to mix, alter, and combine ingredients for patients who may not be able to take a manufacture's medication due to allergies, dosage strength, or formulation.

As a compounding pharmacy, Central Drugs is dedicated to serving the special needs of both physicians and their patients. We have a new state-of-the-art compounding laboratory, which lets patients see their medication made right in front of them while they wait, and where our compounding pharmacists prepare customized prescription medications for both humans and animals. Many veterinarians need custom made medication for their four legged patients, because conventional medication is not in the right dosage form or strength for specific animals.

We also specialize in Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for women and men, and offer free seminars in their use and practice, led by specially trained physicians.

We're able to compound drugs that can meet a variety of needs: to change flavors to suit individual tastes, to customize strengths, to combine active ingredients into one easy formulation, and to devise skin treatments made specially for you. And, as a compounding pharmacy, we're able to make many formulations in the form most suitable to you: as capsules, injectables, lollipops, syrups, pastes, powders, and more.

Quality and Integrity are at the heart of Central Drugs’ core values. Maintaining the safety of our patients and the trust of our prescribers is a responsibility that we take very seriously. We are accredited by the California State Board of Pharmacy and licensed in 37 states for both non-sterile and sterile compounding. We follow non-sterile and sterile compounding regulations by the United States Pharmacopeia 795, 797, and 800 chapters.
