What Is Compounding?
Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing
personalized medications for unique people, just like you.
Compounded medications are “made from scratch” –
individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact
strength and dosage form required specifically by you.
This method allows the compounding pharmacist to work
with the patient and the prescriber to customize a
medication to meet your own specific needs.
TruCare is on a mission to improve lives in both human and
veterinary markets through the science and art of
compounding; all while maintaining our passion for quality
pharmaceuticals and complete customer satisfaction.
Our compounding services are administered by skilled
pharmacists who specialize in the support of injectable and
intravenous medications and dedicate themselves to 24 hour

Order Medication That Is Difficult To Find Or Has Been

specific medication. Often times this happens when there are not
enough patients taking the drug and it has become unprofitable to
keep mass-producing it. But what about the patients who still require
that drug? Hundreds or even thousands of patients may be left
without the medication they direly need.
On your command, a TruCare Compounding Pharmacist, can create
the medication your patient needs via Compounding. So even if your
patient is the only person in the entire world that needs that specific
medication, they can still have it thanks to Compounding.
