Compounding for Patients

In every field of medicine, there are some patients who don’t respond to traditional methods of treatment. Sometimes they need medicine at strengths that are not manufactured by drug companies, or perhaps they simply need a different method of ingesting a medication. Pharmaceutical compounding meets these needs.

It provides a way for doctors and compounding pharmacists to customize an individualised prescription for the specific need of their patient. From combining multiple medications into a single convenient dosage for hospice patients to delivering children’s cough medicine through a flavoured medication, compounding provides solutions not easily met by commercial products.
