Actively influencing policy to protect and benefit the compounding industry.
Medication made personal.
There are 3,600 compounding pharmacists in the United States dedicated to improving the lives of the people who aren't served by mass-produced medication.
But numbers only tell part of the story. We also want you to see the power of personalized medicine through the eyes of the patients, prescribers and pharmacists who experience it every day.

Compounding is the art and science of creating personalized medicine.
It all starts with a problem: the child who can't swallow pills, the patient with a gluten allergy, the much-needed drug that's in short supply. For whatever reason, mass-produced medication simply doesn't work for everyone.
That's where compounding comes in. Special flavorings, unique dosage forms, innovative delivery methods -- using these tools and more, compounding pharmacists work with prescribers to fill a gap in healthcare through customized solutions for specific patients.
