Earning Kansas City's Trust Since 1966

At Stark Pharmacy, we still practice the time-proven art of compounding by using modern variations of “mortar and pestle” to prepare unique and individualized medications. Working with your doctor, compounding allows our pharmacists to customize the strength and dosage form of medication according to individual needs. This may include making an orally dissolving tablet or preparing a drug that is no longer commercially available. It may involve changing a medication from a pill form to a penetrating skin cream, adding flavors, or preparing a dye-free or preservative-free medication.

Our pharmacists, with the expert assistance of compounding lab technicians, formulate just about any kind of medicine specifically designed just for you! Our compounding services can enhance virtually any area of medicine including bioidentical hormone therapy, children’s dosage forms and flavors, capsule and suppository preparations, skin preparations, veterinary medications, sterile injectables, pain creams, medicated lozenges, eye and ear drops and even inhaled therapies. Ask us how compounded medications may help you!
