What is a compounding pharmacy?
Tailor made medicines for you
Compounding is the science of customising/personalising medications by licenced pharmacists in the exact strength and dosage for the specific health needs of patients who may be unable to take the commercially mass-produced pharmaceutical drugs.
Benefits of compounded medicines:
- Access to discontinued or difficult to find medications – we can make them in a safe, carefully controlled environment by a licensed compounding pharmacist.
- Personalised dosage – your doctor may prescribe a more accurate dosage unlike the standard commercialised medicines with a standard dosage, eg. 50mg, 100mg, 250mg where in some instances, patients would have to divide the pill/tablet into pieces.
- Alternative dosage forms – some patients prefer medications in liquid over pills or capsule form, others may prefer creams over gels, which allows medicine to be absorbed through the patient’s skin.
- Easier to use or take medications – adding a flavour and/or colour can be great for infants, children or the elderly, to make it more palatable and aesthetically appealing.
- Allergy-friendly options – some patients may have intolerances and sensitivities to gluten, lactose, dyes, alcohol, sugar and/or certain preservatives.
