Com­pound in­ter­est in heal­ing

Cockburn Gazette - - SPEARWOOD 7 DAY PHARMACY -

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.

Speak to the phar­ma­cists to see if these prod­ucts are suit­able for you and present this ar­ti­cle in store to re­ceive $5 off.
