Abstract:  For the purpose of this article “success” is defined as compounding more prescriptions on a daily basis. Based on that definition, an online survey for compounding pharmacists was developed and conducted. This article provides an overview of the results of that survey. The purpose of this survey was not to imply that attaining a goal of high volume determined success but to compare and contrast pharmacies that reported high volumes of compounding with those that reported lower volumes of compounding. Subjects of some of the major services provided by compounding pharmacists are discussed in this article, including: sterile and nonsterile compounding, consultations, over-the-counter services, pharmacy websites, and marketing.
