What are the Benefits of Compounding?

There are many reasons to use compounded medicine.

Potency changes:

We are able to adjust the formulations to enhance or reduce the potency of the medication to better fit your needs.


Your medicine is on a backorder? don’t worry Apothicare can help by sourcing the medication and formulating in house so that you do not go without your medicine.

Variation in forms:

Capsules, mini tablets, troches (lozenges), gummies, transdermal creams/gels/ointments, suppositories and liquid solutions.


If you have children or pets, you already know how difficult it is to get them to take their medicine. We can help by preparing special flavors for your children or furry companions to make the medicine more like a treat.


Prescription medications can cause side effects. Here at Apothicare we can adjust the formulation to change potency or the rate of release so that it is better tolerated by your body.
