The Benefits Of Compounding Medicines
There are many benefits from having your family’s pharmacy medication products customised at a compounding pharmacy in Perth, here are five of the most important.
BetterTasting Medications: Many children and elderly people in Perth won’t take their medications because they don’t like the taste of the product. This is quite reasonable, because many medications simply don’t taste very nice. So at our Perth pharmacy, our chemist can create compounded medications that taste like strawberries, oranges or bubble gum for example, making it so much easier at medication time.
Correct Dosages: Many pharmacy medications for both children and adults are not available in the correct dosages required and suitable for individuals. This means that you have to break the tablets at home, ending up with unequal halves or quarters and lots of crumbly bits as well. At our Perth pharmacy, we can fix these problems by customising your family’s medications so that each is the exact dosage you need for your better health care.
Discontinued Medications: Sometimes large pharmaceutical companies discontinue particular pharmacy medications or dosages, because they are no longer economically viable. This doesn’t help families when the only medication that actually works for them has now been discontinued. So in these cases, our chemist can actually recreate your old medications at our Perth pharmacy, giving you peace of mind.
Preventing Allergies: Many children and adults in Perth are allergic to a variety of ingredients in mass produced medications. This is because large pharmaceutical companies can add ‘fillers’ into their medications, which can be the cause of your allergies. Our chemist is very aware of this problem and we spend a lot of our time creating medications for our customers that are a replica of their normal medications, but without the offending ingredients. These compounded medicine services in our chemist are a valuable health resource for the community.
Saving Money: You save money with compounded medications in two ways. First, because when you have the correct medicinal dosages, you don’t waste your time and money trying to break them into pieces, losing half or a quarter of the tablets in the process. Secondly, you save money because your children are much happier to take their medications (as they taste better), so there is less chance of wastage.
