Compounding in a pharmacy

When compounding, for example, preservatives and dyes can be removed, pills can be put into liquid form, or flavoring can be added. Medications can be compounded for children, adults, senior citizens, and even pets. Before the dawn of large drug companies, compounding was the norm for every pharmacy.

Pharmaceutical compounding has ancient roots. Hunter-gatherer societies had some knowledge of the medicinal properties of the animals, plants, molds, fungus and bacteria as well as inorganic minerals within their environment. Ancient civilizations used pharmaceutical compounding for religion, grooming, keeping the healthy well, treating the ill and preparing the dead. These ancient compounders produced the first oils from plants and animals. They discovered poisons and the antidotes. They made ointments for wounded patients and perfumes for customers.
