Pharmacy compounding is an innovative way to customize prescriptions to meet your individual specific needs. The demand for professional compounding has increased as healthcare professionals and patients realize that the limited number of strengths and dosage forms that are commercially available do not meet the needs of many patients, and that these patients often have a better response to a customized dosage form that is "just what the doctor ordered".
Compounded medications are made based on your doctors, nurse practitioners, dentists or veterinarians prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form written and required for you.
The Compounding professional pharmacists at Hills can prepare:
- unique prescription preparations based on patient preferences and restrictions such as: preservative-free, dye-free, alcohol-free, sugar-free and gluten free
- medications in dosage forms that are not commercially available, such as transdermal gels, troches, "chewies", and lollipops
- pain medications delivered in a transdermal cream rather than orally to decrease side effects and increase pain relief
We can make medications easier to take, address any special health problems, or just simply get you feeling better, faster
Compounding pharmacists can also help your pets! Sometimes you just can't fool your pet. People often hide medications in their pet's food, but this does not always work. Often the pet will eat right around the medication. Compounding pharmacists can compound tasty suspensions in flavors your pets will devour, like tuna, beef, liver, fish, sardines and more. We can even put medicine in a transdermal gel that can be discretely applied to your pets ear.
The efficiency of any formulation is directly related to its preparation, which is why the selection of your compounding pharmacy is critical!

Hills ability to professionally customize compounded medications specifically for you, quickly and efficiently, gives you the peace of mind you need when choosing your compounding pharmacy.
