Mass-produced medications do not meet the needs of every patient

  • A patient may need a strength not commercially available
  • A patient may need the medication in a different dosage form, such as a suspension or lozenge, so that the medication can be ingested
  • A patient may not be able to tolerate certain preservatives, additives, colors or flavorings in a commercially available medication
  • A patient may need help simplifying their medication regimen

For such problems, specialized compounding may be the answer. The pharmacists at Stuart Ellis IDA Pharmacy have been schooled in extemporaneous compounding, the art and science of preparing medications to meet specific patient needs. Through compounding we can help physicians and their patients by providing customized and unique formulations.

The pharmacists at Stuart Ellis IDA Pharmacy belong to an association of compounders, The Professional Compounding Centers of America. PCCA's extensive support system offers on-going education, training, immediate answers to difficult questions and the latest innovations in compounding research. All of our products are made with the highest quality ingredients, knowledge and expertise.
