Compounding

There are several reasons why pharmacists compound prescription medications. If allergic to dyes or preservatives, the pharmacist working with your doctor, can prepare a product to suit your needs. If swallowing a tablet is a problem, several unique delivery systems can be used to enable you to take the medication more easily. If a product is not palatable, flavorings can be used to improve the taste. If a medication is not commercially available we can often make it. At our Pharmasave locations we offer services that help our clients live in comfort, health and wellness.

As members of PCCA, our pharmacists and technicians are exceptionally skilled in compounding techniques and use only the highest quality base ingredients for our specialty medication solutions.
