Compounding pharmacies are one of the tools in a naturopathic doctor’s toolbox. Take a tour of a compounding pharmacy with Koshland Pharmacy.
Compounded, or customized, medicine is an important option for patients when commercial drugs do not meet their health needs. However, not all compounded medicine is made the same way. There are large variations in compounding pharmacies’ quality assurance procedures. Compounded medicine made to the highest quality standards leads to the best patient outcomes. Anything less creates too much risk for both doctors and patients. In this short virtual tour of Koshland Pharm, learn how three key elements in a compounding pharmacy’s practices make a difference in the quality of their finished products:
- How they source their raw ingredients
- How they make their medicine in terms of protocols, training, and equipment
- How they test their finished products
