Compounded medicines are “made from scratch” – individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This method allows us to work with the patient and the prescriber to customise a medicine to meet the patient’s specific needs.
We compound medicines prescribed by doctors, dentists and veterinarians registered in Australia. On receipt of a prescription for a medicine to be compounded, we aim to complete your compound for same day collection or we can express post anywhere in Australia.
For instance when you have a child that won’t take a medicine, we can help by flavoring medicines to make them taste better, or by compounding the medicine into a dosage form that is easier to swallow, thus making medicine-taking time easier and less stressful for your child – and you!.
Each child is unique. Children differ in size and individual needs. Some have allergies and varying drug tolerances, requiring medicines which are sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, soy-free, or dye-free. As a result, it can be a challenge to find a commercially available medicine suitable for your child’s individual needs. At Fresh Therapeutics our pharmacists work closely with a caring paediatrician to formulate a medicine which meets all the child’s requirements.
Cats don’t like pills, but they do like tuna. We can flavour a medicine or compound into a different dosage form so that they will take it. Dogs don’t appreciate a traditional solution of medicine being squirted into their mouth, but they’ll take it gladly when it’s flavored with meat or part of a tasty biscuit or treat by our compounding pharmacists. Birds cannot take large volumes of liquid medication, but they will accept a small dose of a tasty, fruit-flavored, concentrated solution that we can compound.
At Fresh Therapeutics we can improve therapeutic outcomes by solving problems doctors and patients have with:
♦ allergies to fillers and dyes
♦ discontinued or unavailable products
♦ swallowing oral medicines
♦ dosage forms e.g. tablets, capsules, suppositories
We can tailor make a medicine for you or your pet.
We express post compounded medicines throughout Australia.
