Guidelines for choosing a compounding pharmacy
« on: February 26, 2022, 05:42:15 pm »
I think I lucked out eleven years ago when I got a compounded liquid that let me get smoothly off my remaining 0.125mg Klonopin. I no longer live in that state or even remember the name of the pharmacy. I picked one here that had good reviews and the liquid I received from them seems not to agree with me. In particular they basically took the pure Clonazepam powder and mixed it into a suspension. My old liquid was made from crushed brand name Klonopin tablets and it worked well. I've since come to understand that not all compounding pharmacies are that good. How do I select a good one that won't make errors or variable solutions month to month?

And if anyone has a good mail order pharmacy or one in the DC/MD/VA area to recommend, please let me know. If that request is against forum rules please let me know and I'll remove it

Thanks!

The pharmacies I've known of that do compounding have been independent pharmacies.  Perhaps you might find something helpful on this website:
