What Is Compounding?
Compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for clients. Our pharmacy understands that a “one size fits all” approach to medications meant some individual's needs were not being met.
Compounding uses modern technology and innovative techniques to meet those personalized needs.
How Does Compounding Benefit Me?
Our primary focus is to help clients who are unable to use commerciallyl available medications.
Many people are allergic to dyes and preservatives, or require a different dosage than produced by the manufacturer.
Others prefer a different form or flavor of medication. If a tablet or capsule is difficult to swallow, a compounding pharmacist can help you find a solution. We can make oral liquids, lozenges, creams, rapid-dissolve tablets and lollipops.
Can My Child Or Elderly Parent Take Compounded Medications?
Yes! Children and seniors are often clients who can benefit most from compounding. It is common for parents to have a tough time getting their children to take medicine. We can work with your physician to select a pleasant flavour of your choice to ease this task. For the elderly, a common concern is chronic pain. Most oral arthritis medications cause an upset stomach. A compounding pharmacist can provide pain-relieving medications in a topical cream that is absorbed through the skin.
What Kind Of Prescriptions Can Be Compounded?
Almost any kind! Compounded prescriptions are ideal for any client requiring unique dosage forms and/or delivery devices.
Some examples include:
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Pain, Wound and Scar Therapy
Dermatological and Anti-aging needs
Does My Physician Know About Compounding?
Compounding is a rapidly growing component of many practitioner’s practices, but some may not realize the extent of what options are available to them for their patients.
Through the triad relationship of patient, physician and compounding pharmacist, all three can work together to solve unique medication needs.
