Pharmaceutical Compounding - Coral Coast Pharmacies

Minimize
Compounding is the art and science of tailoring medications to individual needs and requirements. Compounding has traditionally been a skill in all pharmacies but became less relevant over the past 50 years as more manufactured medicines became available. Compounding is now a pharmacy specialist area dealing with much more potent products and hormones requiring extra training and education.

While manufactured medications fit most people’s needs there are always situations that do not fit ‘in the box’.  This is where we can individualise medication for a specific patient.

In our new modern laboratory at Coral Coast Pharmacies Plaza Pharmacy we can compound many different dosage forms to fill the patient’s needs.  These include transdermal creams, capsules, suppositories, mixtures, paints and trouches (lozenges).

Children are specifically suited for custom compounded prescriptions, as some commercially manufactured medication forms are often not the best solution for kids. 

We are able to provide a choice of natural or artificial, colour-free and sugar-free flavours alternatives, and with flavour choices like watermelon, strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, bubblegum, tangerine, orange, cheesecake, strawberry truffle, choc cheesecake, melon berry we will be able to encourage children to accept their medication.  These flavours can be added to your child’s regular medication as well as to our compounded products. 

The region’s most experienced compounding pharmacist Brendan West works with the Coral Coast Pharmacies team to pass on his in-depth knowledge and experience. Brendan trains and mentors our compounding Pharmacist Scott Williams and other team members with information learnt throughout his years in the industry.

We are a member of the Professional Compounding Chemists of Australia (PCCA). PCCA provides its members with comprehensive training in the latest compounding techniques, equipment and devices. 

The Coral Coast Pharmacies’ team are dedicated to promoting health and happiness to you and your family.
