Pharmacist attends compounding course

Pharmacist Jaime Costello of The Medicine Shoppe and Danville Compounding Center recently attended a four-day pharmacy compounding training course in Houston, Texas.

Professional Compounding Centers of America hosted pharmacists and pharmacy technicians at the hands-on training class. Compounding is the pharmacy method of custom-preparing medications to meet each prescriber's and patient's individual needs.

"Many patients are allergic to preservatives or dyes, or are sensitive to standard drug strengths," Costello said. "With a physician's consent, a compounding pharmacist can change the strength of a medication, alter its form to make it easier for the patient to ingest, and add a flavor to it to make it more palatable. The pharmacist also can prepare the medication using several unique delivery systems, such as a lozenge, lollipop or transdermal gel. Preparing these customized medications allows compounding pharmacists to achieve their ultimate goal: to help the physician and patient achieve a more positive therapeutic outcome."
