Pharmacy compounding is the customized preparation of a medicine that is not otherwise commercially available. These medications are prescribed by a physician, veterinarian, or other prescribing practitioner, and are compounded by a state-licensed pharmacist. Before the advent of manufacturing, all medications were custom prepared. Today, custom compounding is done to meet special medication needs or to solve medication problems.
Examples of compounding for special needs include: removal of allergenic ingredients, conversion of solid medications to liquid or topical delivery, flavoring, combining medications, or providing medications that are not available from the manufacturer.
“We are excited to join the Canton community and share the Health Dimensions difference with more residents in the area,” said Scott Popyk, president and CEO of Health Dimensions. “Our distinctive pharmacy provides customers with an opportunity to manage their own health through traditional pharmacy offerings, compounded therapies, nutritional products and professional consulting services.”
“Times are changing rapidly -- not only in the business world, but within the health-care field,” Popyk said. “Our region is seeing pharmacies, both independent and chain, close their doors. I have made a promise to serve the community, providing exceptional pharmacy services and careers that employees can count on.”
Health Dimensions Compounding Pharmacy first opened in 1996 and is the leading accredited compounding pharmacy in the Midwest, providing more than 5,000 physicians with compounds for their human and veterinary patients.
