In modern pharmacy, all medications currently come readily made from pharmaceutical suppliers. However, these readymade medicines are only designed to work in 30-50% of the population. Fortunately, the revival of compounding pharmacies allows doctors to prescribe customised medications to meet the needs of each individual.
Some of the services we provide include:
- preparing medications which are commerically unavailable, reformulated and/or preservative and dye-free;
- unique dosage forms and delivery systems including creams, capsules (immediate or sustained release), sublingual troches, pessaries, drops and suspensions;
- bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT);
- an extensive inventory of certified and pharmaceutical grade ingredients, access to over 10 000 formulations, and equipment to meet almost any compounding requirement.
- sleep preparations
One main area that compounded medicine is currently used for is hormone deficiency. This involves using bio-identical hormones that have the same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced in our bodies.
