Americans have been taken aback by the current shortage of ibuprofen and acetaminophen, two common medications available without a prescription. The root cause is manufacturing delays with the active components utilized to make these drugs, leading to unfinished products on store shelves.

At Bayview Pharmacy, we recognize these medications' importance and the requirement for dependable access. Therefore, we take pride in providing our services as a compounding pharmacy to alleviate those impacted by this shortage.

What Is a Compounding Pharmacy?

Compounding pharmacies have the unique capability of tailoring medications precisely to individual patients, unlike regular pharmacies, which tend to fill prescriptions with large-scale manufactured drugs. This allows compounding pharmacists to develop custom treatments that are tailored specifically to each patient's specific needs.

Compounding pharmacies can customize medications to meet individual patient needs by changing the dosage, form, or flavor of medication or combining several drugs into one. Moreover, they can produce medicines that may be in shortage and unavailable elsewhere.
