Compounding Services

CORE Pharmacy is the first compounding-specialty pharmacy in southern Illinois. We have been focusing on quality compounding for over 15 years. Compounding is a great solution for people that are unable to take commercially manufactured medications.

A commmon misconception is that females are the only ones that go through "the change" during their 40's and 50's, However, studies show that 70% of the general public believes that men experience a mid-life stage similar to menopause in women.
