Compounding allows us to create custom medications specifically for you. Here at The Medicine Man Prairie Pharmacy, we don't just make compounds, we make compounds better.
Compounding Is Medication Problem-solving and can include:
- Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy
- Hard-to-find or unavailable medications
- Combination preparations
- Novel dosage forms
- Changes in route of administration
Compounding is the age-old art of preparing medicine to meet each patient's needs. Reformulating medication by adding flavor is just one example. Our pharmacists have also received extensive training in preparation of unique dosage forms. Our patients and prescribes are no longer limited to the strength, dosage form, and flavor of mass-produced medications. Customized preparations allow for removal of problem-causing additives; for example, we can compound medicines that are preservative free, dye free, lactose free, sugar free, and/or alcohol free. A compounding pharmacist at Medicine Man Pharmacy can make it so it's easier to take your medicine. And improved compliance decreases the overall cost of medical care.

Custom Meds for Your Pet
Have you ever tried to give a dog, cat, or even a bird a pill? If you have, you know it can be nearly impossible. This can be a serious problem as your pet needs its medication. Our pets are part of the family and should be taken care of like family. Medicine Man Pharmacy understands how difficult it can be to make sure your pet is taking its medication. They work to find the best solution for not only the pet, but the owner as well.
Veterinary Compounding is the art and science of preparing medications personalized for each animal. Your veterinarian and the staff at Medicine Man Pharmacy work together to customize a medication that meets the needs of your pet. Sometimes a veterinary medication may be unavailable or might not come in a needed strength. Medicine Man can compound a medication strength, dosage form, or even flavor specific to each animal. If your dog loves peanut butter, his liquid medication can be that flavor. If you have a feline, they may prefer chicken or sardine. Speaking with the owner to find what is palatable for their pet is very important to ensure the animal will take the medication with ease.
