Is Compounding Safe?

Compounding has been an essential part of pharmacy practice for centuries. Many regulatory bodies are aware of the practice of compounding and have set rules with which pharmacies must be compliant. The Food and Drug Administration allows products to be compounded as long as licensed practitioners have written a prescription for a specific patient to be filled at a licensed pharmacy.

Our pharmacy is compliant with USP 795 guidelines for non sterile compounds. We do not provide sterile compounding services which are necessary for injections, eye drops and inhalations.

Mullins also follows Florida Board of Pharmacy guidelines and is inspected biannually.

What types of formulations can be made?

Capsules, creams, ointments, gels, troches, suppositories, solutions, suspensions, syrups, sublingual tablets/drops are all examples of non-sterile products.
