Compounding Custom Medications: Tailoring Healthcare to Your Needs

Reflex Pharmacy is committed to providing innovative healthcare solutions, and one such solution is our ability to customize medications through compounding. Compounding allows us to create personalized medications in various forms, such as capsules, nasal
sprays, suppositories, topical creams, gels, and even lollipops. This unique service is a notable change for individuals who have specific medication requirements and preferences. Whether you are dealing with discontinued medications, allergies to certain ingredients, or have a child who is fussy about the taste of their medicine, our
compounding services offer a customized solution to meet your health needs.


Why Compounding Matters


Compounding is a specialized pharmaceutical service that enables us to modify, create, or customize medications to suit individual needs. There are several reasons why compounding is a vital component of modern healthcare:

1. Tailored Medications: The one-size-fits-all approach to medication does not always meet the diverse needs of patients. Compounding allows us to tailor medications to each patient’s specific requirements. This is especially beneficial for individuals with unique
health conditions or those who require non-standard dosages.

2. Allergies and Sensitivities: Allergies to specific ingredients in pre-packaged medications can be a significant obstacle to receiving the necessary treatment. With compounding, we can create medication formulations that exclude allergenic components, ensuring patient safety and compliance.

3. Pediatric Medications: Children can be notoriously picky when it comes to the taste of their medications. Our compounding service allows us to add flavours to make medications more palatable, increasing the likelihood of children taking their required doses without resistance.

4. Discontinued Medications: It is common for pharmaceutical companies to discontinue certain medications. When patients rely on these medications, it can be distressing. Compounding offers a lifeline by recreating these discontinued medications with the same
dosage and efficacy.

5. Specialized Formulations: Certain health conditions require medications in unique formulations. Compounding provides the flexibility to create custom solutions for conditions like eczema, skin lightening, muscle relaxation, anti-inflammatory and pain management, hair loss, acne management, and more.


Our Comprehensive Compounding Services

At Reflex Pharmacy, we offer a wide range of compounding services to address various healthcare needs. Our dedicated pharmacists work closely with patients and healthcare providers to ensure that the compounded medications meet their specific requirements.

Here is a closer look at some of the compounding services we offer:

1. Flavouring Medications: Especially crucial for children, we can add flavours to medications to improve taste and enhance overall compliance. This makes the medication experience more pleasant for kids and increases the likelihood of them taking their medications as prescribed.

2. Specific Dosage Formulation:
When a medication is discontinued or does not come in the prescribed dosage, we can compound a specific dosage that aligns with the patient’s needs. This ensures that patients continue to receive the medication they require.

3. Allergen-Free Formulations: For individuals with allergies to common ingredients in medications, we can prepare allergen-free formulations by removing problematic components such as dyes, sugars, or lactose. This is particularly beneficial for those with
allergies and lactose intolerance.

4. Liquid and Gel Conversion: If you struggle to swallow pills, we can convert solid medications into liquid or gel forms. This is a convenient solution that makes it easier to take your prescribed medications, ensuring you receive the full benefit of your treatment.

5. Combination Medications: Some patients need to take multiple medications, and managing several pills can be challenging. Compounding allows us to combine multiple medications into a single dosage form, simplifying the administration process and
improving patient adherence.

6. Specialized Formulations: Our compounding services extend to the creation of specialized formulations for a variety of health needs, including eczema treatments, skin lightening solutions, muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatory and pain management creams,
hair loss treatments, acne management preparations, and more.
