Compounding

At Amherst Pharmacy, we are committed to providing you with medications that meet your unique health needs. Sometimes, patients require medications to be blended in a specific way. This process is referred to as compounding and it is necessary for a variety of reasons, including:

  • To change the form of a medication from a pill to a liquid, or gel.
  • To prevent an allergic reaction by removing a non-essential ingredient such as dyes, sugar, lactose, or alcohol.
  • To provide a specific dosage of a particular ingredient.
  • To add flavor to a medication that is otherwise difficult for a patient to ingest.

To learn more about our ability to customize your meds, contact us today at 413-253-0387.

We proudly offer our compounding services for all surrounding communities including Sunderland, Leverett, Shutesbury, Pelham, Belchertown, Granby, Greenfield, Hadley, Hatfield, North Hampton and Ware.
