Compounding Services

Medication compounding is the art of preparing customized medications that dates back to the origins of pharmacy. Working with your physician, Greenbrier Medical Arts Pharmacy still practices the time proven art of compounding to prepare unique medications. “We use only the highest quality active ingredients and state-of-the-art technology to customize the strength and dosage form of a medication according to individual needs,” said Rob Londeree, lead compounding pharmacist at Greenbrier Medical Arts Pharmacy. “Quality control is essential,” said Londeree.

Whatever the request, quantity or delivery schedule, our compounding services can enhance virtually any area of medicine including natural hormone replacement therapy, children's dosage forms and flavors, capsule and suppository preparations, changing medications from pill form to penetrating skin cream, lip balms, medicated lozenges, eye and eardrops, and even veterinary, sports medicine and dental compounding.
