Compounding means that we create personalized medications for our patients.
Compounding pharmacists can personalize medications for patients who need specific strengths, dosage forms (like creams or gels), flavors, or need specific ingredients excluded because of allergies. We can also make medications that have been discontinued or are difficult to find.
Compounds are done by Sona Compounding Pharmacy, available by calling (828) 782-5571.

COMPOUNDING FOR CHILDREN
Having trouble getting your child to take their medication? We can adjust the flavors and dosage forms of your child’s medication to make it easier for them to take.
Transform your child’s medication into a brightly colored and delicious substance (provided in a child-proof package, of course!). We can change the taste and color without compromising the efficacy of the medication. You can also get medication in gummy, lollipop, or topical gel form for children who can’t swallow pills.
Compounding is also a great option for dermatological conditions, such as scar and wound care, acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Call if you have questions or would like advice on how to talk to your dermatologist about compounding.
COMPOUNDING FOR PETS
Like with kids, it can be difficult to administer your pet’s medications. Compounding pharmacists can work with you to put your pet’s medications in a form that’s easy for them to take, like a meat-flavored treat for your dog or a sugary liquid for your bird.
We can also accommodate custom dosages based on your pet’s size or condition.
“As my body changed as I hit menopause, I knew I needed to look into hormone replacement. By selecting HRT, I knew I was getting a customized replacement that dialed in to my specific needs, and manage my mood swings and weight.” – Linda R
