Pharmaceutical Compounding

Many of our staff have taken specialized training through the Professional Compounding Centers of America.This training enables us to customize medications to the unique requirements of the patient or physician. This may be done to perfect a prescribed dosage, make the medication easier to swallow, or remove ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction for the patient.

Examples of the types of compounds we supply include:

  • Topical Creams, Ointments and Powders
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy – Customized Based on Your Doctor’s Specifications
  • Capsules
  • Suppositories
  • Syrups and Suspensions
  • Medications That Have Been Discontinued or Are Unavailable From the Manufacturer
  • Pediatric Medications That Are Not Commercially Available
  • Veterinary Compounds
  • Transdermal Gels
  • Flavoured Compounds

Benefits of Compounding

Compounding is customizing a medication specifically for your needs. There are many reasons and benefits for compounding medications, including:

  • Your medication has become discontinued or unavailable
  • You don’t like the taste of your medication – we can add flavouring to make the medication more palatable
  • Your tablets are too large – we can make a liquid for easier swallowing
  • Your dose strength is no longer commercially available
  • We can address any allergy concerns and intolerances, such as gluten or lactose
  • We can compound medications for your pet that are not available in veterinary supply

Please feel free to call us with any questions regarding the compounding of your medications!
