Compounding enables prescribers and pharmacists to meet the needs of patients. One of its most important benefits is to those patients who have difficulties with commercially available medication. With the prescriber's consent, pharmacists can custom prepare medications in a variety of unique dosage forms including:
* Oral Liquids/Suspensions
* Nasal Sprays
Alternative Dosage Forms

Many patients suffer from a variety of skin conditions and while there is a wide variety of commercial products available these may not suit every patient all the time. For example, patients may have allergies to certain ingredients in a cream such as a preservative. We compound both Prescription and Non Prescription preparations for our clients.
Some of the conditions that we can assist with are:
At certain times some medicines may become discontinued by the manufacturer or temporarily become unavailable due to supply issues. Our compounding pharmacists are able to work with your GP to compound an alternative to the unavailable product.

Palliative care patients can often find the commercially available medication forms difficult or impractical to use. For example, tablets may become difficult to swallow and may need to be prepared as a liquid. At Kerrie Road Pharmacy our compounding pharmacists can work with your GP to compound alternative medication forms that are easy to take and in the correct dose.

There are many therapies available which can assist in regulating your sleep. Sleep disturbances can be caused by many different factors including anxiety, depression or not being able to turn off. Speak with your doctor to see how/if a compounded medicine can assist with your sleep.

Some of the most common issues that are treated with topical preparations include: skin problems, anti-ageing treatments, pain management, inflammation and nausea.
Topical preparations can be compounded into many different forms which include:
