Compounding

In every field of medicine, there are patients who do not respond to traditional methods of treatment. Sometimes they need medicine at strengths that are not manufactured by drug companies, or perhaps they simply need a different method of ingesting medication.

 

Metro Drugs provides compounding services that meets these needs. We specialize in customized medication for women, men, children and pets.  Our compounding pharmacists can customize a prescription to fit your specific requirements. We can combine multiple medications into a single convenient dosage for hospice patients, or deliver children’s cough medicine through a flavored medication. Prescription medications can be compounded and dispensed to patients only upon receipt of a valid patient-specific prescription. These are a few common examples of how compounding can provide solutions that are not met by commercial products.
