A Compounding Pharmacy Is Perfect For Perth Allergy Sufferers

Many people don’t understand the value of a compounding pharmacy in Perth, thinking that a compounding pharmacy is the same as any other pharmacy they regularly visit. Well, most of our functions are similar, as we sell all of the normal medicines  that you are used to in your life, but there is one big difference between a normal pharmacy and a pharmacy that compounds medicines in Perth.

A Perth Compounding Pharmacy vs Regular Pharmacy

If you suffer from allergies and related health issues, then compounding medication can have a big impact on your life. Using the art of compounding, we create personalised medicines. What this means is that if you suffer poor health from allergic reactions from certain dyes or are intolerant to gluten or lactose for example, you might be surprised at how many run-of-the-mill pharmacy better health and pain management products actually contain these ingredients.

This makes life very difficult for allergy sufferers who need certain products, but can’t tolerate one or more of the ingredients, such as gluten. This is where a specialist Perth compounding pharmacy comes in, because by compounding ingredients, we can create the exact same medication or health product for you, but without the offending ingredient.

Your normal pharmacy can’t do this for you. All they can do is to try and find another mass produced medication that doesn’t contain the ingredient that causes your problems.

We aren’t just able to create medications without gluten however –  we can reformulate a whole host of medications for you, giving you full access to personalised medicines specific to your needs.

There are a variety of filler ingredients like dyes and binding ingredients included in the manufacture of mass-produced medications and health products, which are not necessary for the medication to work properly.

So you don’t have to worry about your medication not working properly, because a Perth compounding Pharmacy won’t remove any of the active ingredients from the mass produced medication, instead the problematical ingredients are simply omitted.

Children And Allergies

You might be surprised to learn that many vitamins, particularly children’s vitamins, contain artificial dyes, which can cause problems for children suffering from allergies or intolerances to certain ingredients.

About 10% of adults and children suffer from lactose intolerance, but many children can also suffer from intolerances to food colourings, additives and preservatives – all of which can be included in mass produced medication.

These troublesome ingredients can include yellow dye number 5, monosodium glutamate and sulphites, to name just a few. So your local Perth compounding pharmacy can supply you with whatever quality compounded medications your child needs, but without any ingredients which can trigger a known allergic reaction. This is when you need the expert compounding services provided by your fully trained pharmacist at our compounding pharmacy.

So if you feel that you can benefit from compounding medicine from a pharmacy which provides quality compounded medicines in Perth, talk to your doctor or call us on 08 9387 1803, contact us at or contact us by completing our online enquiry form.
