Compound interest in healing
SPEARWOOD 7 Day Pharmacy has more than 15 years’ combined experience in the field of compounding.
Medicine compounding is where a pharmacist produces a medicine specifically tailored for a patient, using techniques and specialised equipment to ensure an accurate and quality product is prepared.
Those who require compounded medicines might need a specific dose of a medicine or a specific form of a medicine that is not already being manufactured; for example, a patient who cannot swallow tablets can have their medication made into a suspension.
Paediatric patients can benefit particularly with flavours and where products are unavailable.
The pharmacy also makes veterinary prescriptions for animals big and small, from pet budgies to stallions.
Medicines that can be compounded include creams, pessaries, suppositories, capsules, rapid dissolving tablets, ear and eye drops, lotions and fertility medicines.
Many compounds can be prescribed by a doctor, while some can be recommended at Spearwood 7 Day Pharmacy.
Spearwood 7 Day Pharmacy’s compounding pharmacist Shekhar Tidke has vast experience in the field of compounding and can help patients with all their compounding needs.
The pharmacy produces several of its own products, including an antiinflammatory cream which can help with arthritis and other inflammatory diseases, especially for knees, lower backs, shoulders and even arthritis in the hands.
It has also formulated a special teething gel for babies which can be given from four months and helps to relieve babies’ symptoms by reducing the pain, as well as putting a coat on the gum to soothe the inflamed tissue.
