There has been a growing number of drug shortages and discontinuations in recent years, causing concern for both patients and physicians alike. Some point to the growth of mass drug manufacturing as a cause for this shift in medicinal production; some facilities are limited by the number of drugs they can manufacture due to safety and sterility concerns, while others decide to cease production of a particular drug in favor of newer, more profitable drugs. Regardless of the cause, the reality is that this situation leaves many people without access to the medication they require.
As more and more drugs disappear from the consumer market, the presence of compounding pharmacies becomes even more important. Pharmaceutical compounding allows for pharmacists to compound medications for patients on an individual basis, supporting people to gain access to the medications they need.
