Speciality Compounding

What is Speciality Compounding?

Speciality Compounding is the art and science of customizing medication for a person’s individual needs. On the technical side this may mean turning a tablet form of medication into a liquid, gel, cream, aerosol or vise versa. Or customizing the strength the medication needs to be. Or it could mean taking the raw ingredients and making a medication specifically for you. It takes specialized training and lab equipment to be able to offer this service. It was important to us to offer speciality compounding to our clients, ensuring that their healthcare needs are individualized. Our Compounding lab at The Tannery Pharmasave services Driftwood Pharmasave and Central Pharmasave.

How can Speciality Compounding Benefit You?

PCCAThere are several ways in which speciality compounding can benefit you. For example you may be unable to swallow a pill so a liquid is a needed alternative, or you do not absorb gel medications well in your stomach or are allergic to the additives in the medication. Finally you may have a specific need that there is no regular medication for, or everything has stopped working. In all of these cases, come speak with one of our pharmacists today so we can guide you through your options and select what is best for you.
