Could Medication Compounding benefit me?

  • Do you have trouble swallowing tablets or capsules?
  • Do you use multiple medications on a regular basis?

What is Medication Compounding?

Many people experience problems with the medications they are prescribed. Some drugs are not available in the strength required by patients, some patients are allergic to various ingredients in their medication and some have trouble swallowing capsules and tablets.

To alleviate these problems a Compounding Pharmacist can customise your medication to meet your specific needs.

With your Doctor's consent, a Compounding Pharmacist can:

  • Tailor the strength of your medication to your individual requirements;
  • Combine multiple prescriptions into a single dosage;- Alter the form of your medication to make it easier to ingest;
  • Add flavourings to your medication to make it more palatable; or,
  • Provide your medication in a more suitable form such as:
    • A lozenge;
    • A spray; or,
    • A gel.


What kind of prescriptions can be compounded?

Almost any kind of medication can be compounded, if you would like further information, please talk to your Doctor or Pharmacy 777 Pharmacist.
