What is Compounding?
Compounding is the practice of preparing personalized or custom medications by mixing and/or altering the ingredients of a drug or several drugs to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient.
Not all pharmacies can compound, nor do all compounding pharmacies test their compounds for accuracy. Central pharmacy, however, is fully equipped with the highest quality equipment and ingredients, has specially trained pharmacists and technicians, and we regularly send samples of our compounded medications to a laboratory for potency testing to ensure we are dispensing proper medication dosages.

In Santa Monica ?
This should be your place.
Amazing service! I had just had another bad experience at the rite aid down the street. At this point I was done with rite aid and started walking down to this pharmacy to see if they could help me. I arrived at 4:50, they close at 5, I explained to them my situation and how I was treated at rite aid. They quickly entered my insurance information processed my prescription and had me out of their office in 10 minutes.
They never once complained on me showing up at at closing and they never one mistreated me. I felt like a valued customer.
They made a customer for life. Treating your customers with respect goes a long way!
