More Medication Options Available at Emslie’s Compounding Pharmacy in Perth
Emslie’s compounding pharmacy in Perth is very family orientated and every customer receives friendly, personal service by highly trained professional staff.
Emslie’s compounding pharmacy also offers many health care services including the preparation of compounded medicines by their qualified pharmacists.
Compounded medicines differ significantly to the regular mass produced products available in most pharmacies in WA.
In simple terms, compounded medicines are customised, quality medicines which are prepared for the specific health needs of patients in the pharmacy – not in a factory somewhere.
With your doctor’s consent in Australia, qualified chemists can change the strength of your medication, altering it to make it easier to take or to it to make it more palatable. This is a specialised service and capability that is quite rare and not something offered at those supermarket-style chemists.
Benefits Of Compounding Medicines
There are many benefits from having your family’s pharmacy medication products customised at Emslie’s compounding pharmacy in Perth, including:
Better Tasting Medications: Many children and elderly people in Perth struggle to take their medications because of the taste of the product. Compounded medications can be prepared to taste like strawberries, oranges or even bubble gum for example, making it so much easier at medication time.
Correct Dosages: Often, pharmacy medications for both children and adults are not available in the correct dosages required, resulting in the need to break up the tablets. This often results in unequal halves or quarters with wasted crumbs and consequently, incorrect dosages being taken.
Discontinued Medications: Pharmacists at Emslie’s are able to recreate medications that have been discontinued by large drug companies because they are no longer economically viable.
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 cause those allergies. The pharmacists at Emslie’s can prepare medications for their customers that are a replica of their regular medications, omitting the offending ingredients.
Reducing wastage: You reduce the amount of wastage with compounded medications in two ways. Firstly, you don’t waste the medication when trying to break tablets into smaller pieces, losing half or a quarter of the tablets in the process. Secondly, your children are much happier to take their medications (as they taste better), so they are less likely to spit them out.
