Our Difference 

Nature’s Apothecary is locally owned compounding pharmacy located in the gorgeous southern tip of Cayuga Lake in Ithaca, NY. 

Our services are unique in that we work in conjunction with medical doctors, but offer products that do not go by the one-size-fits-all theme of mainstream pharmaceuticals.  

We offer custom medications to fit specific patient needs such as vegan, organic, non-GMO options and have the ability to make medications in rare dosage forms/ strengths which best suites the patient.

What is Compounding? 

Some medications are not perfect for all patients and this is often when compounding can be helpful. Compounding is the customization of medicine for an individual patient's specific requirements. There could be a number of factors why a typical prescription would need to be compounded or personalized. 

The compounding pharmacist works closely with the doctor and patient to combine individual ingredients to fit the exact specifications for a particular patient. 

We truly believe that compounding medication for patient needs is a rewarding proposition, but is even that much greater when the patient’s whole life improves.
