With our specialized equipment and qualified staff, we can compound various medications for you at a reasonable price. Before drug manufacturing became a major business, you would have to have your prescriptions compounded. Now, it is more challenging to obtain custom-prepared medicine. Providing a complete health solution with mass-produced pharmaceutical drugs is difficult. No two people experience the same ailment in the same way. Compound medication addresses these differences by providing a customized health solution designed to treat individual cases. Health Canada says that compounding medicines is legal and ethical as long as it is done by a licensed practitioner from a licensed pharmacy for a specific patient. The Ontario College of Pharmacists regulates it.
This service is especially beneficial for people who:
- Have trouble responding to or taking commercially available medicine
- Need an exact strength or dose of a medication
- Have sensitivities or allergies to dyes and preservatives
- React adversely to the taste of medicine
- Have difficulty swallowing pills
- Require a medicinal combination that is not commercially available
At Allwel Pharmacy, we are proud to produce high-quality compound medicine for our patients. We want to address each patient’s unique problems by providing personalized healthcare. Through this approach, our pharmacists can offer different dosage forms like rapid dissolve tablets, lollipops, suspensions, creams and more. They can also alter the strength of your dose to suit your needs and reduce nausea and other gastrointestinal side effects senior patients commonly experience. Almost any kind of prescription or over-the-counter medication can be compounded.
Approximately one in four Canadians either have diabetes or are pre-diabetic, according to the Canadian Diabetes Association. Our staff includes a certified diabetes educator and manager who is committed to helping diabetic patients learn more about their condition. They can help manage it better with customized strategies tailored to your lifestyle. We will work closely with you to ensure your sugar level stays within your doctor’s recommended range.
