  • Question: What preparations can a pharmacy compound?

    Answer:

    Pharmacies may compound preparations that are not commercially available.  Pharmacies may compound preparations that are similar to approved drug products only if the compounded preparation is changed to produce for an individual patient a clinically significant difference to meet a medical need as determined and authorized by the prescriber.  Pharmacies may compound preparations that are identified currently in a shortage, if identified in the FDA’s drug shortages database found at FDA Drug Shortages.
