If the medicine you need is not readily available at our premises our professional pharmacists can often order it in or direct you to where you can find it. Some of our dosage forms include troches, creams, ointments, lotions, sublingual drops, capsules and children’s formulary. Please note that most medications are compounded within 24-48 hours.
What is a Compounding Pharmacy?
Before large pharmaceutical manufacturers began selling mass-produced medication in limited strengths and formulations, the standard means of providing prescription medications was by pharmacists compounding. In recent times, compounding has made a “come-back” as doctors are now seeking a more individualised approach and quality products for their patients.
Compounding allows the pharmacist to tailor make medicines to suit the individual patient and their unique needs in terms of strength or formulation upon request by the doctor. Compounding chemists can also make some medications that are now out of production or discontinued.
Our compounding services:
- help the patient to take medication easier
- allow patients to have access to discontinued medications and even hard to find medications
- provide the proper dosage of medication with exact strength for you
- can make your medication allergy-friendly
- offer unique services that you will never experience in other larger Pharmacy chains
What is a troche?
A troche is a form of medicine delivery similar to a lozenge which is placed between the cheek and gum and allowed to dissolve. This dosage form encourages a faster rate of absorption of the medicine, can include multiple active ingredients and can be flavoured to suit the patient’s preference. They are supplied in a tray which contains 30 individual troches that can be easily cut into halves or quarters to suit the dosage prescribed by the doctor.
