Customized Medication

Compounding Medications

Compounding offers more freedom in customizing a medication to fit a patient’s needs.

Although most medications default to set dosage amounts and a pill form, compounding allows us to alter the dosage and form of the drug to best suit each patient while still maintaining the properties of the original prescription. For example, if a patient struggles with swallowing pills, we can alter the medication so that it does not need to be taken orally, making the experience more bearable.

At Galleria Medical Pharmacy, we offer both sterile and non-sterile compounding.

At Galleria Wellness, we offer both sterile and non-sterile compounding.

Sterile Compounding

In order to insure patient safety and avoid contamination, Galleria Medical Pharmacy prepares its custom medications in a sterile environment. This process is called Sterile Compounding. Our personnel follow very specific guidelines to maintain a clean and safe environment. Medications are compounded for various reasons such as manufacturer backorders, drug shortages and discontinuation of medications..

Non-Sterile Compounding

Non-sterile compounding involves medication that will be ingested or applied topically. Because these methods of administration carry lower health risks, these medications do not need to be prepared in a sterile environment. However, this does not mean these methods are any less safe than sterile compounding. Non-sterile compounding still follows strict legal standards, and is prepared in a closely monitored environment.

Galleria Medical Pharmacy’s compounding facility is safe, efficient, and effective. Our practices are aided by:

  • Expert Technicians
  • High Quality Standards
  • A Variety of Dosage Alternatives
  • Safety Monitoring Technology
