Compounding

CompoundingAt Park Royal Pharmasave, we realize that no two people are alike.  Through the practice of compounding medications, our pharmacists cater to the unique medical needs of individuals, infants, children, and even pets!

Compounding combines an ageless art with the latest medical knowledge and state-of-the-art technology, allowing specifically trained professionals to prepare customized medications to meet each patient's specific needs. 

Preparation of specialized medications requires chemicals and equipment that are not available in most pharmacies.  We have access to complete resources for fine chemicals, equipment, devices, and flavors.  We strive to keep up-to-date on new research and innovations in the pharmacy compounding field. 

Compounding pharmacies prepare special medications by mixing (or compounding) raw ingredients.  In the 1920s and 30s, the majority of medications were made by pharmacists for a specific patient.  Today, compounded prescriptions represent only about 1% of all prescription drugs. 

PCCACompounding has had a significant evolution in the last 10 years or so.  New technology allows pharmacists to prepare custom prescriptions with total confidence in quality control.  There have been recent certification standards created by a number of non-profit organizations.  As well, more companies are offering quality control testing of compounded products and pharmacists have access to classes to learn about the newest compounding techniques.  Finally, a number of leading organizations are garnering evidence-based and health outcome data to demonstrate safety and efficacy of various drug profiles.

Our compounding pharmacists prepare customized medications to assist you and your doctor to improve the therapeutic outcome of your treatment and have undergone extensive PCCA (Professional Compounding Centers of America) training and accreditation in compounding techniques.
