Major pharmaceutical companies make drugs and medicines that are effective for the majority of the population. Unfortunately, it is impossible to make medication that works for everybody. Some people might need specific compositions that are not available or discontinued due to certain circumstances.
Even if you have a common ailment that is curable with a simple and widely available over-the-counter drug, the ingredients in the drug might cause an allergic reaction in your body. This is why you should buy your medication from a Compounding Pharmacy Australia.
Compounding pharmacies don’t use special ingredients that are not available to mass-producing pharmaceutical companies. They use the same ingredients but make small changes to the composition like add, remove, increase, decrease, or replace chemical ingredients from the original composition. The changes in the chemical composition of the drug might be small, but the changes you will experience will be big. Chances are you’re still not convinced. Here are three benefits that should change your mind.
Tailor-Made for You
If you’ve recently taken medication for an ailment that your doctor prescribed but your body is just not responding to it, then it might be time to head over to a Compounding Pharmacy Australia. The compounding pharmacist can work with the doctor and prepare a drug that is custom-made for you. It is like purchasing a tailored suit that fits you perfectly.
In addition to changing the ingredients of the medication, a compounding pharmacist can even change the form of dosage. If your body is not responding to oral medication, then the same medication can be made in a suppository form or a topical spray or any alternative form that works for you.
Unavailable Medicines Made Available
Sometimes, large pharmaceutical companies have to legally or for some unforeseen reason have to discontinue the production of a drug. However, a replacement drug becomes available quickly so that the patients who need the drug don’t suffer. But the replacement drug might not work for everybody. Using the method of compounding, pharmacists can create a similar if not the same drug. This is because compounding pharmacies have access to all the ingredients.
Add Any Flavour You Desire
Most people don’t mind the unpleasant flavour of medicines. But children and sometimes even elderly people will refuse to take their medication because ‘it tastes bad’. Compounding pharmacists can add any flavour you desire so that the drug is easier to consume.
