Compounding

Compounding: The art of creating custom medications, based upon scientific knowledge and research, to optimize treatment outcomes for patients.

Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of customizing medications to meet a patient’s specific needs. Commercially available drugs or dosage forms cannot always meet the requirements of the patient and/or their doctor. Compounding allows us to tailor your treatment to your unique needs, ensuring that you receive the best possible outcomes from your therapy.

At Custom Care Pharmacy & Compounding Centre, our purpose built laboratories contain cutting edge equipment, allowing us to prepare both sterile and non-sterile medications and products. Our USP 797 sterile laboratory has achieved ISO 5, ISO 7 and ISO 8 certification. Our pharmacists and pharmacy technicians have received highly specialized training at the Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA) and are certified to handle your compounds with the highest of standards.

Your safety is important to us and as such, we take extra precautions to ensure that both sterility and stability testing are done on a regular basis both in-house and through a third party, giving us an additional level of security. We aim to provide the best quality of care to our patients.

Our compounding professionals can prepare:

  • Unique dosage forms (e.g. transdermal gels, lollipops, etc.)
  • Medications with fewer additives and without allergen causing excipients (i.e. dyes, sugar, lactose or alcohol)
  • Medications that have been discontinued or are not commercially available
  • Medications that are more palatable by flavouring

We can prepare various dosage forms, some of which are:

  • Lozenges, lollipops, sublingual tablets

  • Solutions, emulsions, suspensions
  • Suppositories, enemas
