About PCCA

What is PCCA?

PCCA is the complete resource for independent compounding pharmacies, providing high-quality products, next-level education and above-and-beyond support.

The PCCA Story

More than three decades ago, a physician challenged a Houston-area pharmacist to compound an anti-nausea medication that was no longer commercially available. The pharmacist consulted with his peers and acquired the chemicals necessary to prepare it.

The prescription was a success, and the pharmacist realized that others in his field faced similar demands to help patients who require commercially unavailable or personalized medications. As a result, a network of pharmacists formed together, united by a commitment to meet patient needs, and PCCA was born.

Incorporated in 1981, we have grown our membership to over 4,000 independent community pharmacies in the United States, Canada, Australia, and other countries around the world. We are the complete resource for independent compounding pharmacists with an unshakable foundation of commitment and loyalty our members can build on.

Our Mission

PCCA’s mission is to help pharmacists and prescribers create personalized medicine that makes a difference in patients’ lives.

Serve as the complete resource for independent compounding pharmacies, providing high-quality products, next level education, and above-and-beyond support.

Do compounded medications require FDA approval?
The FDA approval process is intended for mass-produced drugs made by manufacturers. Because compounded medications are personalized for individual patients, the federal government has approved the use of compounded medications for those individuals who have received a prescription for that specific compounded medication.
