At Southcity Pharmacy we produce individualised medications including creams, mixtures and capsules in our on-site laboratory.

Our compounding pharmacists can work directly with the physician and patient to select a flavouring agent for their medication, which provides both an appropriate match for the medication's properties as well as the patient's taste preferences.

Why are compound medications prescribed?

  • Preparation of medications using unique delivery systems. eg. a flavoured liquid instead of a capsule for patients that find it difficult to swallow
  • Avoid unwanted ingredients such as dye, preservative, lactose, gluten or sugar
  • Add flavour to make the medication more palatable
  • Adjust medication strength
