Braun Pharmacare is a pharmacy specializing in fertility, hormone, and veterinary medicine, as well as in the art of compounding medicine for hard-to-find or difficult to administer human or veterinary medicines. Located in Chicago, IL, this company serves downtown Chicago, including the neighborhoods of Lake View, the Magnificent Mile, Avondale, Logan Square, Goose Island, West Town, Humboldt Park, Ukrainian Village, Wicker Park, Central Loop, Greektown, University Village/Little Italy, Illinois Medical District, and the Near West Side. The company has been in business since 1987 and is family owned and operated, and is a member of the Professional Compounding Centers of America association, a group dedicated to educating the public about compounders and ensuring standards of excellence in the compounding industry.

This pharmacy provides medication to individuals, and specializes in fertility drugs, hormone replacement therapy, and veterinary medicine. This pharmacy is also a compounding center. Compounding is the art of mixing medications according to the specifications of the prescribing doctor, using chemicals and other necessary ingredients in order to create the proper dosage specifically for the customer. Braun Pharmacare can make medications that are dye or preservative-free for those who are sensitive to these additives in laboratory-created medications, create dosages of medications that are more enticing for children who do not want to take their medication, or mix veterinary medicines that reduce their characteristic bitterness and thus increase the chance that the pet will take them. The pharmacy offers a variety of discount and financial assistance programs to ensure that customers can afford their medication.
