"Everybody's body is different, and you react differently to different things," said compounding pharmacy customer Beth Ann Matlock. "So I think the compounding is really the way to go. It's specifically made for the individual."
"I went to the compounding pharmacy here, and they compounded a triple fish liquid that I was able to give him in an eye dropper," said customer Nancy Niland. "He loved it, and it literally saved his life."
"These types of preparations are extremely critical, because they're injected into the patient's bloodstream," said Director of Enforcement for the Texas State Board of Pharmacy Carol Fisher. "So any kind of mishap can be fatal."
