Compounding Medication

Compounding is the science of making medications that are customized to meet an individual’s needs. Compounding pharmacies can prepare medications with the best strength and dosage form to meet specific health requirements.

Why Compound Your Medications?

Compounding offers the ability to make medications that have been discontinued or are no longer commercially available. In addition, our specially trained compounding pharmacists and technicians offer unique dosage forms and flavors for administering medications to children and animals. We also have unique formulations for a variety of specialties, including pain management, hormone replacement, dermatology, and much more! We take pride in the compounding services we provide our patients. The following information details services that are frequently requested by our team. However, we love a challenge! If you don’t see information on a subject of your interest, please contact one of our locations and speak to our compounding pharmacist.

Sterile vs Non-Sterile

Medications that are taken through injection, eye drops, or any other method that bypasses your body’s natural defenses require sterile compounding. Our sterile compounding facility follows strict sanitary guidelines. We can compound sterile ophthalmic drops, ointments, sprays, injections, and pre-op solutions, including anesthetics, antibiotics, antioxidants, antivirals, cataract therapies, corticosteroids, ophthalmic decongestants, miotics, mydriatics, and lubricants. We only use the highest quality ingredients from an FDA-registered supplier.

Are Compounded Medications Safe?

Compounding pharmacies are registered and licensed in the state they operate. Additionally, state licensing boards ensure the use of approved ingredients and methods for every medication we compound. Our designation as a PCAB® Accredited Compounding Pharmacy is formal recognition that ClearSpring Pharmacy’s Littleton location ranks among the best compounding pharmacies in the United States for compliance with quality standards. Compounding pharmacies receive oversight in other regards to ensure patient safety.

Quality Compounding Maximizes Therapeutic Outcomes

The efficacy of any formulation is directly related to its preparation, which is why the selection of your compounding pharmacy is critical. Ongoing training for compounding pharmacists and technicians, state-of-the-art equipment, and high-quality chemicals are essential. Experience and ingenuity are important factors as well. When modifying a formula or developing a unique preparation, the compounding pharmacist must consider physical and chemical properties of both the active ingredient and excipients, solubility, tonicity, viscosity, and the most appropriate dosage form or device for administering the needed medication. Standard Operating Procedures should be in place and appropriate potency testing should be performed. Our compounding professionals can formulate suitable medications such as sublingual drops, oral and nasal sprays, lollipops, rectal solutions and suppositories, and other customized dosage forms.
