Compound Pharmacy

Pharmacy compounding is preparing custom made medicines to meet the individual needs of patients.

Although pharmacists have been compounding since the origins of pharmacy, most medicines prescribed today are ready prepared, and therefore most pharmacies don't have the facilities to prepare compounded medicines.

At Main Street Pharmacy we have specially built compounding laboratories with the latest equipment and trained staff to ensure the patient is provided with a quality product.

Main Street Pharmacy is a member of the Professional Compounding Chemists of Australia (PCCA).

There are many reasons why pharmacists may be asked to compound a medicine. The main reason is to increase patient compliance, that is, to make the medicine easy to take or give. Patients may be allergic to preservatives, dyes or additives, or may be unable to take the standard strength commercially available. The medicine may also be required in a form that does not come ready prepared. A compounding pharmacist, in consultation with your doctor, can change the strength of a medicine, alter its form to make it easier to take by flavouring or by changing how it is to be given.

A compounding pharmacist can prepare medication using several unique delivery systems such as creams, transdermal gels, suspensions, capsules and troches or lozenges.
