About us


Our story is all about helping you solve your chronic pain and health related problems so you can get back to living your life to the fullest.



When we opened our doors in 1995, we became one of the first compounding-only pharmacies in the country. At The Compounding Shoppe, we chose to specialize in making custom medicines to cater to individual customers. We like to describe ourselves as a modern pharmacy practicing the ancient art of the apothecary.

Our specialty practice is comprised of a state-of-the-art compounding lab that utilizes not only the latest equipment, techniques and information; but also has one of the best compounding systems in place. It is our system that allows us to custom-compound high quality medications day in and day out. With our commitment to quality and excellence The Compounding Shoppe has earned a reputation as one of the nation’s top compounding pharmacies.



Over the years, the ability to compound medications to meet the exact needs of each patient, has allowed us to help solve many challenging health problems. For example, we have successfully helped to treat more than 30 different types of pain. You could say we are a one-stop shop for total pain solutions. 

However, we began to be challenged with problems such as chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia that could not be solved with commercially available medicines. To meet these needs, we now take an integrative medicine approach to solving problems. We integrate the best of modern Western medicine with a more naturopathic medicine approach. This includes organic, professional-strength, whole-food nutritional therapies, and homeopathic medicines to help solve our clients’ health problems.



We think of ourselves as a wellness pharmacy. At The Compounding Shoppe, we take extra time to ensure that every ingredient that goes into our compounded products are of the highest quality. That standard helps ensure the safety and effectiveness of all of the medicines we make for you. But don’t just take our word for it! In 1998 we became the first Alabama pharmacy to earn Full Fellowship in the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (FIACP). We remain the only Fellow to practice in Alabama. Additionally, in September of 2007 our pharmacy became the first Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB) Accredited pharmacy in the country!

The Compounding Shoppe would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of our valuable clients, both present and future. We also gladly welcome any practitioner wanting to use our pharmacy resources and services.
