We know what matters

Capital Chemist Garran - Specialist Compounding Chemist

Compounding is a solution to your medication issues

At Capital Chemist Garran, one of our specialties is compounding.

What is compounding?

While you can get standard medicines from most pharmacies, a compounding pharmacy creates custom medications from base ingredients, tailored to the needs of the patients.

How could I benefit from a compounding pharmacy?

There are many reasons you may benefit from a compounding pharmacy. Do you:

  • notice side effects like an upset stomach when taking oral medications?
  • have trouble swallowing tablets?
  • have an allergy or sensitivity to ingredients commonly used within standard, ready-made medications, like lactose, sugar, alcohol, gluten, casein, flavours or dyes?
  • require a different medication dose to what is regularly available?
  • have any other reason you have difficulties taking your medication as directed?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, talk to our pharmacists about how we can create a customised, compounded medication solution to suit your needs and help you feel your best.

How does compounding work?

After chatting to you about your specific needs, our pharmacist will create a customised formula that both meets your medical and individual requirements, with a dosage tailored just for you. Your medication is created from scratch, customising the strength and dosage as necessary, and is mixed and packaged up on site.

All compounded medications are made by our highly-qualified pharmacists following our stringent guidelines.

Just like with standard medications, you will still require a prescription from your doctor.
