About iCompound Compounding Chemists

Mass produced Medicines Are Not For Everyone
Mass produced medicines made for anyone don’t always work for everyone.
Patients may be allergic to preservatives, colours or flavours, or sensitive to the standard drug strength, or can not take the form of delivery from a manufactured drug.
We are all individuals and our bodies handle and respond to medications in different ways.
