The compounding pharmacist must be specially trained in the art of compounding medications and be a recognised member of PCCA.
Both Margaret and Taryn hold these specialised qualifications.
Who Benefits from Compounded Medications?
Compounded medicine is the art and science of preparing customised medications for patients.
With the doctors consent we can change the strength of a medication, alter it’s form to make it easier to take, or more palatable to taste.
This way of preparing medicine has many practical applications including:
Compounded medicines are ideal when you have small children who have trouble taking unpleasant tasting medicine, as the highly trained pharmacist can compound a medicine for a child which actually has a more pleasant taste.
Compounded medications are just as helpful when it comes to the size of some of the tablets, where some ready made tablets need to be cut smaller to get the right dosage. This often ends up with crumbs of medication on the kitchen bench, which indicates that the dosage will still not be correct. Your local compounding pharmacist can compound your prescribed medications to the exact dosage so there is no wastage or incorrect doses taken. This makes it not only easier but safer as well.
Some people with specific allergies have been known to have adverse reactions to some of the ingredients used in standard medicines. Therefore, a medication that has been compounded, omitting the offending ingredient, is an obvious solution.
The pharmacists at Emslie’s Pharmacy also provide quality compounded medicines suitable for patients in WA who don’t respond to traditional medicine and require their medicines tailored to suit their specific needs, especially in the areas of Hormone imbalance, sleep disorders and ADHD.
