What is compounding?

Pharmacy compounding is a highly specialised practice in which a qualified pharmacist combines, mixes, or alters ingredients in response to a prescription to create a medication tailored to the medical needs of an individual patient.

Pharmacy compounding serves a crucial public health need if a patient cannot be treated with a TGA-approved medication.

 

Some of the ways Compounding can help.

 

To Help With Compliance

  • Children’s Preparations can be made more palatable
  • Animal Medications can be reduced in size, put in flavoured dose forms or into transdermal creams

 

Reduce Side Effects

  • Pain Management ~ topical high strength preparations can penetrate through the skin to have a local effect.

 

Individual Needs ~ not one size fits all, in particular;

  • Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement ~ practitioners will draw on pathology and their knowledge to find the right balance. 
  • Amino Acids and Nutraceuticals ~ new medical testing can determine the biochemistry of different individuals to assist in finding a person’s requirements.

 

Hypo-allergenic

  • Herbs, Vitamins and Minerals can be made without lactose, gluten and gelatin to assist with intolerances and allergies.

 

Unique Requirements

  • Through a large range of suppliers both from Australia and Overseas we can access many different ingredients.
