i worked for an animal pharmacy and it’s true-there’s pretty much no option for birds other than getting drugs from a compounding pharmacy. another thing i’ve needed for my own cat is antiviral medication but in eye drop form. there’s no other way to get them. the other problem with animal drugs is that pharmacies aren’t technically supposed to give owners compounded medications to take home. as you can imagine, this is really hard when a bird is on a compounded oral antibiotic which they need and can’t wait for the owner to get in the mail whenever the pharmacy (which might be across the country) can make the drug. as a result, most vets have no choice but to send home compounded drugs anyway.

I can imagine the place in Texas were they hired these people were more than likely minimum to just above minimum wage, Probably an Asshole boss doesn't care whether he has high turnover or not. most of the employees probably smoke pot in their cars before they come in after lunch. And come up with these hilarious names to put on prescriptions.

I think a compound drug is probably better than something produced by some anonymous multi billion dollar corporation. A pharmacist is quite surely better than some robot drone operated by some drunken shareholders.

I still enjoy the show for its entertainment value, but it can't be trusted when it comes to factual reporting. I remember them making quite a few false claims in the "Medical Bias" episode that really shocked me. Saying that there "obviously aren't" physical differences between the races is not only ignorant, but dangerous. I thought we could trust this show, but clearly we can't. And while some people might say, "But they only made that one mistake". Maybe, that we know of. That's the thing with reporting. Either you can trust them completely, or not at all. If they lied/misinformed to you once, there's no way tell if they are doing it about other things as well. If a GOOD journalist makes a mistake, they print a redaction to make sure everyone knows. But this show has made mistakes and never addresses them.

I have used compound pharmacies for each of my pregnancies to help prevent having a miscarriage. I have issues with progesterone. The typical progesterone hormone pill was not strong enough. So i had to have an injected form every day till i reached 17 weeks. This could only be made in compound pharmacies. It was a God send and i now have 4 beautiful kids( including a set of twins). So, compound pharmacies can be life saver. So, yes there should be oversight but they are definitely needed.

When I was young most pharmacies were owned by the Pharmacist. He stocked a number of commonly prescribed medications as well as wheel chairs, walkers, support hose and film. Every pharmacy sold film for cameras. In most cases it escaped the Sunday Blue Laws unlike almost everything else. for those of you who have never heard of Blue Laws: Almost all businesses were closed on Sunday. But those that were open could only sell certain products. The prohibited shelves were usually covered with a blue bed sheet. The Pharmacist mixed a lot of the prescriptions because there weren't as many manufactured drugs available like today. Some also made their own cough medicine and skin ointments. Our Pharmacist had a cough medicine made from rock candy soaking in a bottle of gin. Today the Pharmacist is most likely to work for a large chain and is a pill counter. He opens a bottle, counts out the requested number of pills and puts them in his private labeled vial. I use a compounding pharmacy and have for years. Because of another medication I can no longer produce testosterone. I used to use a manufactured product but it cost almost $650 a month. Those familiar with Medicare know that at that price I would be in the "donut hole" rather quickly and would have to pay a higher co-pay. Instead, I have the same product made up. A three month supply is $165. Because it is not FDA certified my insurance company will not pay for it or reimburse me even though it has exactly the same ingredients listed on the lab report I get with the product. I am saving money though by staying out of the "donut hole". Compounding pharmacies serve a good purpose.

I worked in a hospital pharmacy at around the time that the NECC issue began and it was insane. We actually had patients who received compounded drugs which we were able to pull before they were used. They were supposed to take back all of the fucked up medication and they still hadn't a few years later. We weren't able to regularly dispose of them as out-dated but because of the issue we had to hold on to them. I would get so pissed off just looking at them. The greed and lack of caring for patients is appalling.

My maternal Grandpa used to be a pharmacist, and I'm certain he used to make his own medicines, because he had stuff for it and he used to make us stuff that no other place had. Oh, and by the way, one of those was awesome. It died our skin pink, but it caused injuries to heal super fast and with no infections. I fell on my bike and shredded the skin on my palm, but it was healed in just a few days after soaking it in that stuff.

As someone who worked for a Florida compounding pharmacy for almost 5 years, there are some definite hits AND misses in this. For example, bulk production. The typical CP runs as a 503 A or Patient Specific, or as John said "Bespoke", facility. To produce in larger quantities that arent patient specific, a facility would have to go through a massive amount of paperwork, inspections, and registration to become a 503 B. We had tried for years to become a 503 B and only in the past few years did they succeed. It opens them up to much tighter scrutiny and standards. A GOOD CP will have multiple layers of QA/QC as well as outsourcing for testing both sterility and efficacy. All in all, the few that make the news tend to make life harder, but not impossible, for the many that work hard and keep their noses clean.

I wish I could get adderall compounded because the generics all come with a variety of efffectiveness(or none) and different side effects. this can vary even withtin the same manufacturer. For those who think generic is just as good as brand name (which insurance wont approve most times) look into generic effectiveness with adderall, cymbalta, and buproprion and look to see all the different people complaining(or lawsuits) when their medicine is no longer effective or makes things worse.

"Found fungus in a vile" was taken way out of context. It may have been a legit violation, but based on the information provided here, it sounds like propaganda. Fungi has medicinal uses as well. For all we know, they may have recently made a fungi-based medicine for someone. Shit reporting on this one, John Oliver.
