A drug developed and customized for an individual patient as outlined by a physician’s prescription. These drugs are designed to meet a patient’s specific and unique clinical needs.
Who prescribes custom, compounded drugs?
Only a physician can prescribe personalized, or compounded, drugs. The physician’s prescription specifies the drug’s active ingredients, concentration, dose, pharmacological combination, among other factors. Personalizing drugs in this manner can provide patients with medicines that are not available at conventional pharmacies.
