What is Compounding

Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients. At one time, nearly all prescriptions were compounded. With the advent of mass drug manufacturing in the 1950s and ‘60s, compounding rapidly declined. The pharmacist’s role quickly devolved to that of a mere dispenser of manufactured dosage forms, and most pharmacists no longer were trained to compound medications. Unfortunately, this mass produced, “one-size-fits-all” method for medications meant that many patients’ needs were not properly met. Central Drug knows the importance of having the right medications, custom tailored to you and your needs.
Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are made based on a practitioners prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This method allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient’s specific needs. Read more

Our compounding pharmacy specializes in sterile compounding and is equipped with a state of the art ISO Class 7 sterile room that is required for the production of sterile preparations. We are the only licensed, sterile PCAB accredited pharmacy between Houston, San Antonio, and Corpus Christi. Our set up exceeds the requirements set by the USP 795, 797, and 1116 guidelines. These ensure that we exceed the highest standards required for sterile production.

Functional Medicine

Personalized medicine is the pursuit of optimal health, of a dynamic body with excellent vitality, boundless energy, restful sleep, a sharp mind, disease resistance, greater quality of life with less pain, greater movement, low blood pressure and heart rates, and excellent lab numbers that reflect a body in harmony with its environment.

Cherise FNP-BC is an active Fellow in Anti-Aging, Metabolic and Functional Medicine-completing her fellowship in the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) in 2019. She is zealous about personalizing care for every person and takes time to listen and evaluate so she can treat the root cause of the problem rather than suppressing symptoms.
