1. Years ago there were no drug manufacturing companies so your neighborhood pharmacist would formulate medication specifically for you. At Central Compounding Center we still practice this ancient art of customizing medications for the unique needs of the Durham, Cary and Raleigh communities.
  2. If you’re one of the millions of Americans whose unique health needs cannot be met by commercially manufactured medications, our trained, licensed Central Compounding pharmacists are here to help. We offer private consultations, will confer with your practitioner and then per prescription, we will personally prepare a compounded medication for you.
  3. In addition to the many years of training required to become a licensed pharmacist, our Central Compounding pharmacists have received extensive training in compounding techniques and we are committed to listening to and caring for our North Carolina patients.
  4. Traditional pharmacies lack the specialized equipment necessary for proper compounding. We have invested in state-of-the-art laboratory equipment that allows us to effectively compound customized medications to meet your special needs.
  5. The pharmacists at your local compounding pharmacy are proud to be members of the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP) [link to www.iacprx.org], the professional organization that protects your access to customized medications.
  6. Central Compounding Center is also a member of Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA) [link to www.pccarx.com], a source for high-quality chemicals and specialized compounding equipment. In addition, PCCA membership offers continuing compounding education, consultation and support which provide our compounding pharmacy the benefit of decades of compounding experience.
  7. In order to be profitable, pharmaceutical manufacturers only produce drugs that appeal to a large target market. Unfortunately, the optimal dose or dosage form of a medication for you may not be what is produced for the masses. If the medication you’ve been using has been discontinued, if you need a smaller/different dose than what is manufactured, or if you need to take your medication in a different form, then our compounding pharmacy can help you.
  8. Medications often have inactive ingredients which are problematic for certain patients; for example, sugar for diabetics, lactose for those who are lactose intolerant, dyes for those with allergies or children with autism. Our compounding pharmacists at Central Compounding Center can prepare your medication without using these problem-causing excipients.
  9. At Central Compounding Center, we are committed to meeting the needs of our hospice patients and compounded medications are often needed to adequately address these special needs. We can compound medications for symptom control of nausea and vomiting, pain management, dry mouth, and wound care, just to name a few.
  10. Don't assume Central Compounding Center only prepares customized medicine to be taken by humans. Our compounding pharmacy can also make medications for your pets.
