Understanding Compounding Pharmacies: Medicine Made To Suit Your Needs!

Have you been struggling with a condition that just seems to not be resolved with regular medicine? Have you visited a Specialist or Doctor and they’ve prescribed you with a medication that requires compounding? Upload Script – Request a Price! 

Now, you’re wondering, what is a compounding pharmacy, what do they do and where do I find one? 

Compounding Pharmacies have many solutions to many situations. They allow access to medicines that may not be available in Australia or can make allergen-free medication, if you’ve ever struggled to take your medication because of an allergy to an ingredient in regular medicine such as lactose, gluten, dairy, gelatin, sulphur, sulphate, magnesium stearate and the list goes on….?

Perhaps the regular available commercial medicine dosage is too strong or is not available in a way that is easy to swallow? The tablets might be too big, you might prefer a liquid, the flavour does not taste nice or it comes as a tablet and you might need it as a cream, ointment or liquid. If so, then compounding pharmacy could be the answer.

What is Compounding Pharmacy?

Unlike traditional pharmacies that dispense mass-produced medications from pharmaceutical companies, compounding pharmacies specialise in creating customised medications tailored to each person’s needs.

These specially formulated medications, known as compounded medications, to address specific challenges you might face with ready-made commercially available drugs.

Most Australians would have used a traditional local pharmacy to purchase generic, one-size fits all medications at some point in their lives 

A licensed compounding pharmacy can make medicines and other healthcare custom made products in its own local facility using individual pharmaceutical ingredients.

Think of it like baking a cake. You can buy a cake that is “ready made” and is sitting on the shelf waiting for you to pick it up and purchase it or you can order a custom made cake which is designed and baked they way you want it or need it to be. 

By law, we can only make up prescription-only medicines based on an official script from a licensed practising medical practitioner in Australia.

The growing complexity of modern life means that, more than ever, individuals demand control and choice around what goes into their bodies.

Compounding pharmacies give you that choice with personalised compounded medications for you, your children and even your pets. Find out more!

How can we help you?

Why Choose a Compounding Pharmacy?

Compounding pharmacies offer a range of benefits, they can help with:

  • Overcoming Allergies and Sensitivities: Many medications contain inactive ingredients like fillers, dyes, or preservatives that can trigger allergies or sensitivities. Compounded medications can be formulated to exclude these problematic ingredients, allowing you to receive the necessary medication without unwanted side effects.
  • Dosage Adjustments: Commercially available medications might not come in the exact dosage you require. A compounding pharmacist can adjust the strength or concentration of the medication to meet your specific needs, ensuring you receive the optimal therapeutic effect.
  • Dosage Forms: Difficulty swallowing pills? Compounded medications can be formulated in various dosage forms, such as liquids, creams, gels, suppositories, or lollipops, making medication administration easier and more comfortable, especially for children or elderly patients.
  • Discontinued Medications: If a medication you rely on has been discontinued by the manufacturer, a compounding pharmacy may be able to recreate it using its active ingredients, ensuring continuity in your treatment plan.
  • Changing Flavours: Certain medications can have a bitter or unpleasant taste, making them difficult to take. Compounding pharmacists can add flavouring agents to disguise the unpleasant taste, improving medication adherence, especially for children.
  • Compliance: A compounding pharmacy can combine multiple medications into one capsule, to assist with remembering and improving a person’s ability to take their medicine.
  • Unavailable Medicines: A compounding pharmacy can make medicine that is out of stock long term, difficult to find or is available overseas.
  • Doctor’s Request: A compounding pharmacy can make medicine to suit your doctor’s prescription request, that may not be readily available in Australia.

Allergies to Medicine

Allergen-Free Formulations: If you have allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients in medications, compounding pharmacies can create formulations that are free from those allergens, ensuring your safety and well-being.

We make up your medicine fresh when you need them, and we skip all those artificial additives, if needed. So, you get the same effective medicine without any of the extra stuff you don’t need. It’s like getting a custom-made version of your favourite brand, but without the unnecessary stuff.

If you’re looking for a compounding pharmacy, it’s essential to find one that understands your allergy concerns and can tailor your medications accordingly. At My Compounding we make allergen-free formulations source our ingredients from reputable pharmaceutical facilities to ensure they meet your needs.

Complex formulations

When you’re looking for a compounding pharmacy to prepare complex medicine, it’s natural to wonder what kinds of medications they can make. Compounding pharmacies are pretty versatile – they can whip up all sorts of customised medicines to fit your needs. Here are some examples of the types of compounded medications they can do:

Customised Dosages: Sometimes, the standard dosage of a medication isn’t quite right for everyone. Compounding pharmacies can adjust the dosage to suit your needs, whether you need a smaller dose for a child or a higher dose for an adult.

Alternative Forms: Not a fan of swallowing pills? No problem! Compounding pharmacies can turn your medication into a liquid, cream, gel, or even a lozenge or lollipop. Whatever works best for you.

Combination Medications: Sometimes, you need more than one medication to treat a condition. Compounding pharmacies can combine multiple medications into one convenient dosage, making it easier to keep track of your regimen.

Veterinary Medications: It’s not just humans who benefit from compounded medications – pets do too! Compounding pharmacies can make medications specifically tailored to your furry friend’s needs.

Hormone Replacement Therapy: For those undergoing hormone replacement therapy, compounding pharmacies can create customised hormone formulations to match your body’s unique needs.

Topical Pain Relief: Compounding pharmacies can create customised topical creams, gels, or patches containing pain-relieving medications for localised relief from conditions like arthritis, muscle pain, or nerve pain.

Dermatological Preparations: For skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, or acne, compounding pharmacies can formulate customised creams, ointments, or solutions containing specific ingredients tailored to address your skin’s needs.

Dental Compounds: Compounding pharmacies can prepare specialised medications for dental use, such as mouthwashes, oral gels, or preparations for oral surgeries, to address specific dental conditions or alleviate discomfort.

Nutritional Supplements: In addition to prescription medications, compounding pharmacies can create customised nutritional supplements, vitamins, or mineral preparations to address individual nutritional needs or deficiencies.

Bio-identical Hormone Therapy: For individuals seeking hormone replacement therapy, compounding pharmacies can formulate bio-identical hormones that closely resemble hormones naturally produced by the body, tailored to individual hormone levels and needs.

Paediatric Formulations: Compounding pharmacies can create child-friendly formulations of medications, such as suspensions or flavoured liquids, to make it easier for children to take their prescribed medications.
