Q. What is a compounding pharmacy/pharmacist? A. Compounding pharmacists are specially trained to mix individually specific medicines.

They have the education and equipment that allows them to mix patient-specific medicine according to clinician prescription. The medicines they use are purchased from labs and distributors that are FDA-registered and compliant. Compounding pharmacies are used, in non-HT situations, when a patient is allergic to something in the commercially prepared delivery system, or by patients who need medicines used by relatively small patient populations which are no longer profitable for the pharmaceutical companies to produce.
