Keperra Compounding Pharmacy offers a special service for customers who require custom preparation of their medications.
When would one need compounded medication?
Commercially available, “one-size-fits-all” medications do not necessarily mean they can work for everyone. Certain conditions may require customised medications including allergies, swallowing problems, or a specific dosage requirement.
Compounding answers these specific needs, giving the medical practitioner and patient complete control over the dosage, form, excipients, fillers and other ingredients that go into the medication.
Specifically, compounded medication may be prescribed when:
- Required medications are not commercially available
- Specific dosage form, such as transdermal gels, troches, “chewies” and lollipops, or specialised dosage strength is not commercially available
- The patient is allergic to certain ingredients such as dyes, sugar, lactose, or alcohol.
- A combination of select medications into a single dosage form can make it easier and more convenient to administer treatment
Compounding pharmacies such as Keperra Compounding Pharmacy and their team of pharmacists who boast of decades of experience, provide the best alternative to traditional, mass-produced commercial medications.
Keperra Compounding Pharmacy follows a voluntary industry standard, administered by the Professional Compounding Chemists of Australia PCCA. What this means is that compounding pharmacists and technicians undergo continuous training, the facility uses state-of-the-art equipment and high-quality chemicals are only purchased from Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approved suppliers.
More importantly, the pharmacy ensures that testing protocols are followed and complies with standard operating procedures. Incidentally, Keperra Compounding Pharmacy takes pride in being standards approved medicine compounder for over eight years.
