At a ‘regular’ pharmacy you can have your doctor’s prescriptions filled and you can purchase a lot of other essential health products as well. Most times your local pharmacy is just a ‘regular’ pharmacy. This means that they are not trained to customise your medications for you.
Special training is needed to allow your pharmacist to compound your medicines.
Essentially a regular pharmacist can substitute a different medication if your usual medication is not available and can also substitute a cheaper range of generic versions of your medications. If however, the tablets your child needs to take are too big or the syrup doesn’t taste very nice, a regular Perth pharmacist cannot alter the medicine.
A compounding pharmacy in Perth WA on the other hand, can actually tailor your prescribed medications to suit the needs of your family. This is a wonderful customer service for families, who have children or the elderly who need regular medications, but have problems taking them.
Helping children to take their medications is made easy at your Perth Pharmacy.
Emslie’s family pharmacy in Perth provide compounding medicines to help make your child’s syrup taste like strawberries or bubble gum. They can even change a tablet into a syrup or even a gummy bear, making it so much easier for your child to take their medications.
It is not just children who have difficulty in taking the medicines, some elderly patients have problems as well. Helping the elderly with their medications is just one more of the extra health care services provided by this Perth Pharmacy in WA.
For the elderly, many tablets are either too big to swallow or the tablets are not the exact dosage needed. This means that your elderly relative has to break the tablets into pieces (which generally crumble) and then it is unclear if the patient receives the right dosage.
At a compounding pharmacy in Perth you can ask them for the exact dosage, removing the problem altogether.
Problems can occur when certain medications are no longer produced by the big pharmaceutical companies because these drugs are no longer cost-effective for them to manufacture.
Sometimes the only available option on the market doesn’t work as well as the discontinued drug. So at your compounding pharmacy in Perth, the pharmacist can make up the discontinued medication for you.
Most mass produced medications have fillers in them. These fillers are additives that can cause allergic reactions in susceptible people. At a professional compounding Perth pharmacy you can ask for your medications without the offending ingredients.
