In addition to filling day-to-day prescriptions, it is also our job to prepare personalized medicines that are not commercially available and have been prescribed by doctors. SMC Pharmacy is affiliated with the Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA), utilizing only the finest chemicals, equipment, devices and flavors. Working closely with PCCA, our compounding specialists have access to the latest formulas, ingredients and training in the realm of pharmaceutical compounding.


The work of a compounding pharmacy combines an ancient science and art with the absolute latest in medical knowledge and state-of-the-art technology. Our specially trained staff of highly skilled pharmacists and technicians is here to prepare extremely specialized customized medications to meet each patient’s personal needs. Healthcare professionals and their patients have realized that the limited number of strengths and dosage amounts that are commercially available do not meet the needs of many patients, and that these patients often have a better response to customized dosages and forms. We fill specialized prescriptions for individuals ranging from adults with specific allergies, to patients in need of hormone replacement for both men and women, to elderly and ill individuals who may have a hard time swallowing many conventionally manufactured medications. The special needs of many of our customers have made the work of a Santa Monica compounding pharmacy more essential than ever.

Veterinary Compounding

Just like their owners, animals are individual and unique. They come in different shapes and sizes, and may be sensitive to ingredients that are found in commercially available products. As a result, not all commercially available medicines are appropriate for every pet. That’s where compounding is especially helpful. In this situation, your veterinarian can prescribe a flavored liquid, treat, or other dosage form with the amount of medication that is exactly right for your pet’s size and condition.

Medication Therapy Management

Our pharmacists aim is to optimize drug therapy and improve therapeutic outcomes for patients. We work directly with patients to collect patient-specific information, assess medication therapies to identify medication-related problems, develop a prioritized list of medication-related problems, and create a plan to resolve them.

Our staff will work with you to where all of your medications are filled together on the same day of the month.
