Compounded Medications Are A point Of Difference At Emslie’s Pharmacy Perth
Emelie’s Pharmacy Perth is well known for the caring attitude of their well trained and friendly staff as well as the many important health care services the team provide to the local community on a daily basis.
Compounded medications are not readily available at most of the larger super chain chemist shops, and there lies an important point of difference for Emslie’s Pharmacy Perth.
Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing customised medications for patients.
With consent from your doctor, we can change the strength of a medication, alter its form to make it easier to take, add flavour to it to make it more palatable or substitute any ingredient that may cause you an adverse reaction.
Your compounding pharmacist can make a huge difference to the way you and your family take your medicines including:
No more breaking up tablets: All mass produced medicines are sold in a set number of doses, and often these doses are too large for some patients who then need to halve or even quarter the tablet, often causing crumbling of the tablet which can lead to an incorrect dose being taken. Compounded medications are made to the exact dose size required in each tablet.
No unpleasant tasting medicines: Some children and some very elderly people often refuse to take their medications, because they don’t like the taste of them or they can’t swallow tablets. However. Your local pharmacists here at Emslie’s Pharmacy are able to custom create your medicine for you, with options for tablets being changed to liquids or syrups and horrid tasting syrups changed to more appealing flavours.
No more issues with allergies: If you or a family member are allergic to or simply prefer not to ingest particular ingredients in regular medicine, then drug compounding is the solution. Your compounding pharmacist here at Emslie’s Pharmacy can create the same medicine for you, but without these ‘filler’ ingredients, which can often be the problem in mass produced drug products that can set off your allergies.Compounding Information Available At Emslie’s Pharmacy PerthIf your family has any of the above issues with their medicines, you will certainly benefit from visiting us here at Emslie’s Pharmacy, your local compounding chemist in Perth where we specialise in drug compounding medicines.Just ask your GP for a compounding drug prescription and then pop in to see us.
