Sterile Compounding Pharmacy with High Quality Products
Recently the quality of compounded products in our country has been in the spotlight. In this climate, it is wise for every practitioner to question not only where you get your compounded sterile products, but what quality control measures are being followed and what level of commitment does the compounding pharmacy have to sterile products. The unfortunate truth is that the quality and level of commitment to sterile compounding varies widely across the country, and even across town. Sadly, there are far too many facilities where corners have been cut in the interest of profit margin.
The Compounding Pharmacy of America will never cut corners on quality. Our standards are the highest in the industry, and patient care is always the foremost thought on our mind. Allow us the opportunity to be a partner in your patient’s pharmaceutical needs. We are a recognized industry leader in providing:
- Fortified eye drops

**No Longer Offering Avastin Products
The Compounding Pharmacy of America is disappointed to inform our customers and potential customers that we will no longer be offering Avastin products for ophthalmology and retina specialties. This is a proactive decision on our part due to the incredible and unfair scrutiny brought onto our industry in the wake of the New England Compounding Center meningitis contamination event. It is a gut-wrenching and emotional decision on our part due to the fact that we know how Avastin has saved many patient’s sight by arresting macular degeneration. However, the FDA only sees that it is a “sterile product” and is repackaged in large batches. This makes pharmacies providing Avastin for ophthalmology public enemy number one in the FDA’s eyes. Meanwhile, the commercial product costs literally 1000 times what the Avastin does for the patient. It is a terrible position to be in for the retina centers, ophthalmologists, and especially the patients. That is why, even though we have a perfect record for our sterile products to this day, we have made the decision to cease providing this service.
We have begun the process of transitioning our existing Avastin accounts to other pharmacies at this time, and will be happy to provide a referral to another pharmacy for any new accounts who may need it. We will, of course, continue to provide excellent customized pharmaceutical products that you know and expect from the Compounding Pharmacy of America.
