Marketime Drug partners with its sister store, Koru Pharmacy, to prepare medications and formulations to meet patient’s special needs. Our pharmacies use the finest, high quality ingredients available to make each specially compounded medication. Our highly trained pharmacists work with health care providers to help patients get the best care possible. We offer a variety of specialties with our compounding services. These include veterinary, bio-identical hormones, dental, sports medicine, dermatology, chronic pain and many more.
Medications are frequently only available in one form. This often presents a problem for patients who have trouble with the traditional pill or capsule. However, through compounding we can provide alternate dosage forms of your required medication.
- Oral suspensions/solutions
- Sublingual drops
- Transdermal creams, lotions, gels
- Specialty flavors and scents
- Forms free of dye, sugar and/or preservatives
Prescription compounding is achieved through an essential triad relationship between the patient, physician and pharmacist. The physician first prescribes the medication. Then, the pharmacist takes the necessary ingredients, compounds them, and dispenses the medicines to the patient after a thorough and personal consultation. This enables patients to receive the type of personalized care they need.
These practices allow the pharmacist to provide services that many conventional pharmacies overlook.

Physical therapists, athletes, coaches and team physicians are often faced with sports injuries.

We have been providing customized solutions to athletes and sports teams around the northwest for many years and look forward to working with you.
