What is Compounding?

At Pharmacy BC/The Medicine Shoppe, we offer compounding services for our patients. Pharmaceutical compounding is the practice of producing custom-made medication according to the patient’s needs, as opposed to commercially manufactured medication. Our pharmacists understand our patients and the challenges they sometimes may face with their medications. Compounding offers effective workarounds to many obstacles which are seldom addressed by regular medication. Some of these include:

  • Patients with allergies and intolerances to non-medicinal ingredients and preservatives
  • Patients who require alternative administration methods such as topical, liquid, lollipop, rectal, etc.
  • Children who struggle with oral medication due to bad taste
  • Patients who require medication that is no longer commercial made, or is on shortage

Our compounds are made using the highest quality ingredients. We offer compounding services at all seven of our locations across the Lower Mainland. Custom medication is available for a wide range of treatment areas including:

  • Pain Management
  • Arthritis
  • Hormone Therapy
  • Sports Medicine
  • Wound Care and Scar Treatment
  • Allergy Treatment
  • Anti-Aging
  • Cosmetics

Should you have any additional questions about our compounding services or about our pharmacy, please do not hesitate to contact us.
