Compounding Services: What You Need to Know

Hello, my name is Kate and this is my pharmacy blog. Last year, my mother became very ill. The doctor prescribed a range of medications but my mother was having severe problems with swallowing the tablets. I contacted my pharmacist and asked for help. The pharmacist explained that he could offer a compounding service in which the pills would be crushed and then mixed with other material to form a liquid which is easy to swallow. I was so pleased that I have kept in touch with the pharmacist and I have learnt a lot about the other services they offer.
