About Wedgewood Pharmacy

A compounding pharmacy creates customized medications for individual patients in response to a licensed practitioner's prescription. Wedgewood Pharmacy is one of the largest compounding pharmacies in the United States, serving more than 20,000 prescribers of compounded medications. It is located in Swedesboro NJ and licensed throughout the United States.

Background: About Compounding Pharmacy

Because every patient is different and has different needs, customized, compounded medications are a vital part of quality medical care. The basis of the profession of pharmacy has always been the "triad," the patient- prescriber-pharmacist relationship. Through this relationship, patient needs are determined by a prescriber, who chooses a treatment regimen that may include a compounded medication. Prescribers often prescribe compounded medications for reasons that include (but are not limited to) the following situations:

-- When needed medications are discontinued by or generally unavailable

from pharmaceutical companies, often because the medications are no

longer profitable to manufacture;

-- When the patient is allergic to certain preservatives, dyes or binders

in available off-the shelf medications;

-- When treatment requires tailored dosage strengths for patients with

unique needs (for example, an infant);

-- When a pharmacist can combine several medications the patient is taking

to increase compliance;

-- When the patient cannot ingest the medication in its commercially

available form and a pharmacist can prepare the medication in cream,

liquid or other form that the patient can easily take; and

-- When medications require flavor
