Compounding Standards

Millions of prescriptions are compounded by pharmacists, nurses, and doctors each year in the US to meet the unique needs of patients who otherwise may not have access to the required medicine in the right concentration or dosage. Understanding of the risks inherent in compounding and incorporating established USP standards into everyday practice is essential for patient safety.
