Many years ago, prior to the establishment of large pharmaceutical companies, people relied upon apothecaries for the preparation of their medicine. Apothecaries would usually have common medicines and herbal remedies in store. But they also played a much larger role. They take orders for medications and whip up a concoction that they deem will cure the ailment of the patient. They basically make their own medicines as well as its measurements.
Our compounding services at Santa Maria Pharmacy are an offshoot of the roles that the apothecary played in the past. Combining an age-old art and brand new technology, we furnish our clients with medicines made specifically for their prescription needs. Now, they will not be forced to buy whatever is on the market because whatever they need, we can make it for them.
