At Emslie’s compounding pharmacy in Perth, one of our most popular services is redesigning medications for the elderly. As we age, we all know that the number of medications we need to take seems to grow exponentially and this can pose problems for many of our older relatives.
This is why locating a compounding pharmacy can be a great benefit to your family, because you don’t have to worry about your elderly relatives having difficulty breaking their tablets up every day.
The reason that tablets need to be cut up is because the large multi-national pharmacological companies only manufacture tablets in certain sizes. This means that if your mother for example, needs a 5mg tablet, but they only come in 10mg sizes, she will have to break the medications into two pieces every day.
This can be a big problem for the elderly because of arthritis in their hands, poor vision and a lack of coordination. At our compounding we solve all of these problems for you and your elderly relatives.
When elderly people have problems with their medications, they can quite often just not bother with them, because it is just too difficult or too stressful for them. This is why having customised tablets from your compounding pharmacy in Perth is such a good idea.
Here at our compounding pharmacy we can also change tablets into liquids, if your elderly relative has problems swallowing tablets, and make liquids taste of strawberries or something really nice for them (which is also great for children of course).
