Pharmacists make drugs on site

February 17, 2003

Albany- Pharmacist David Hays at Hays Pharmacy and Compounding Lab is one of the few pharmacists who mixes drugs in the Albany area.

Hays says when patients need special drugs for special needs, he can make any type of drug in various forms, so it will be easier for customers to take their medications.

Hays adds, "It gives me great satisfaction as a pharmacist that I can make drugs tailored to my patients' needs. They no longer have to pay lot of money for medicines that they can get right here."

Hays says by making drugs for patients at his pharmacy, it saves him lots of money because he doesn't have to buy high cost medicines from manufacturers, which also makes it cheaper for his customers.
