Riverview Pharmacy is a Compounding Pharmacy.
What is Compounding?
Compounding is simply Custom made medications tailored to individual patients. We can compound capsules, suspensions, specialized creams, ointments and pastes. We also compound bio-identical HRT such as Troches and creams.
We compound pharmaceuticals for 8 main reasons:
- It’s not commercially available.
- It’s an off licence pharmaceutical.
- Your doctor wants a customized formulation that is not manufactured.
- When the patient is allergic to certain preservatives, dyes or binders in available off-the-shelf medications
- You want the medication reformulated so that it’s more palatable or want another way to deliver the medication such as a suppository, pessary, suspensions, lollipops, creams and ointments.
- When medications are discontinued by the manufacturer.
- When medications require flavour additives to make them more palatable for some patients, most often children.
- When medicines are out of stock from manufacturer’s.
