most prescriptions were compounded.• Today only about 5% of prescriptions are compounded.• Compounding exists today as a means to create custom

tailored medications for a patient without having to go through the FDA approval process.

Compounding vs. Manufacturing

• A compound is by definition a Patient Specific Medication.• Not regulated by the FDA, our system does not go through

FDA approval process. Ingredients are FDA approved for safety and stability.

• Compounding is instead governed by USP 795 Guidelines.• Repackaging and re-labeling not state or federal compliant.• A compound is called by its generic name. (ex: 20% Baclofen)• Free samples / promotion of compounds are not common

practice.• Compounds cannot be transferred or sold between
