Compounding in Pharmacy

Throughout the centuries, pharmacists have compounded (made and/or mixed together) medicines for their patients. In fact, up to the early 1900s, the only medications available were compounded. In this century, while drug manufacturers supply the majority of medicines, our compounding pharmacists are still the experts in specialty prescription compounding.

Why Choose Compounded Medications

Unique and Individualized Strengths

Compounded medication assures you the exact dose that you require.

Alternate Medication Delivery System

Difficulties swallowing by mouth? Compounding allows you to choose a specific medication delivery system such as liquids, gels, capsules, lozenges or suppositories.

Improved Flavours

Hate the taste of your medicine? We offer FlavoRX, a unique program that allows us to customize the taste and flavour of medications (very handy for children).

Discontinued, New or Alternative Medications

In many cases we can reproduce medications that are not presently available from the manufacturer.
