Benefits of Compounding
Products are frequently removed from the market due to discontinuation, decreased drug utilization or declining manufacturer profits. What happens when a product you find extremely beneficial is removed from the market? Using pharmaceutical-grade chemicals, a specially trained pharmacist with the proper equipment can compound a medication containing the same active ingredients as the discontinued product.
Dosage Form Unavailable?
Commercially produced medication usually comes in the form of tablets or capsules. However, infants and some adults may find it difficult to swallow capsules. Through the use of compounding, your medication can be made into liquid, suppository, troche, lozenger or other forms to administer the medication. Have your doctor contact us and we can produce your medication in a form that suits your needs.
Inconvenient to Use?
Do you take multiple medications every day? Or perhaps you have a skin condition that requires two or three medicated preparations? Through the art of compounding, these medications can be made into one base that contains the needed concentration of each of these medications. The result is a medication that is much more convenient to use.
Why take two or three pills when you can take one? A compounding pharmacist can alter the dosage size of your medication, so you are not limited to the sizes that are commercially produced.
Are you allergic to a certain type of medication because of a preservative, dye, binder, or excipient in the medication? We can prepare medicines that are free of the ingredients that you are allergic to. Have your doctor contact us and we can prepare a compounded medication for you.
Having Trouble Taking Your Medicine?
Maybe you have a hard time swallowing a certain medication, or perhaps you can't swallow pills at all. Maybe your medication just tastes bad! If this sounds familiar, then Cambrian Pharmacy can help. Through custom compounding we can provide oral medications in more enjoyable forms, such as flavoured liquids, topical gels, gummi bears, lozenges, and even lollipops. Imagine actually enjoying your medicine!
Tired of Splitting Tablets?
Are you tired of breaking tablets or swallowing multiple capsules for a single dose? Using specialized equipment, Cambrian Pharmacy is able to prepare customized dosage forms to meet your specific needs. For example, a medicine may only be commercially available in a 25 mg. and 50 mg. tablet. Yet, your doctor may find that the best dose for you is 40 mg. Therefore, you would need to split the tablet and hope you get the correct dose.
At Cambrian Pharmacy we can prepare the exact dosage you require. You won't end up with too much medicine, which is wasteful and could cause adverse effects, or too little medicine, which could be ineffective.
