CompoundingCompounding at Mat’s Pharmacy

At Mat’s Pharmacy, we have a PCCA trained pharmacist and a state of the art compounding department on-site. We treat a variety of individual ailments.


What is compounding?

Pharmacy compounding is the practice of preparing a more personalized medication for a patient. Compounded medications are made based on a prescription in which specific ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. Using this method, the compounding pharmacist is able to customize the medication that will work best for what the patient needs.


Using Compounding to Manage Pain…

Our compounding pharmacist has received advanced training in the preparation of custom pain medications in topical form to meet each patient’s specific needs. We offer many unique options for pain management, regardless of pain origin and whether pain is acute or chronic. By working together with patient, physician, and other members of the health care team, we can individualize medications and make necessary adjustments to maximize pain relief.


Custom topical gels can be prepared by our Compounding Pharmacist to treat the pain at its trigger point. We formulate highly effective trans-dermal gels to treat pain, inflammation, and nerve damage.

We work with your doctor to compound different combinations of medications to treat specific pain needs.


Reasons for compounding

One of the main reasons why compounding can be helpful, is to assist in patient compliance. We want to do everything we can to make sure you are taking your medication as prescribed.

  • A young child may need a small, liquid dose of a drug made only in adult-dosage tablets.
  • A person may be allergic to one of the ingredients in the commercial version of a drug.
  • Patient may not be able to take certain medication because of a side effect
