Compounding at Pharmacy Matters

The age-old tradition of pharmacy compounding is almost a lost art. Once prevalent in the 1940’s and 1950’s, compounding is the art and science of preparing pharmaceutical formulations from scratch right within the walls of the pharmacy.

Pharmacy Matters has a 350 square foot compounding laboratory within our Iowa City pharmacy. This state-of-the-art compounding laboratory has all of the necessary high-tech equipment to make any type of product that you can imagine:

  • Capsules
  • Troches (lozenges that dissolve in the mouth)
  • Liquids and suspensions
  • Creams and ointments
  • Gels
  • Lollipops
  • Suppositories
  • Sprays
  • Transdermal gels (gels which deliver medications through the skin and into the bloodstream)
  • Veterinary prescriptions
  • Flavoring

Pharmacy Matters does not compound any products that are commercially available. Instead we compound customized products for specific or individual needs. We can also compound products which have been discontinued are temporarily unavailable:
  • lactose-free preparations
