What is Compounding?
Compounding is fundamental to the pharmacy profession. Our compounding professionals can formulate medicine that meet the unique needs of each individual. Compounding is about finding alternatives where limitations would otherwise exist.
Our compounding laboratory contains state-of-the-art equipment that is not found in most pharmacies. We use the highest grade of ingredients to formulate each medication. This results in a high quality product that specifically meets the patients individual requirements. The demand for professional compounding has increased as healthcare professionals and patients look for solutions to medication problems.
The limited number of strengths and dosage forms that are commercially available do not meet the needs of many patients, and that these patients often have a better response to a customised dosage form that is “just what the doctor ordered”.
Our compounding professionals can prepare
- Unique dosage forms containing the best dose of medication for each individual, such as transdermal gels, troches, medication sticks, lollipops, gummies, ‘chewies’ for pets
- Medications free of problem-causing excipients such as dyes, sugar, lactose, or alcohol.
- Medications which meet specific dietary requirements e.g. lactose free, gluten free, free from animal products, halal or kosher
- Combinations of various compatible medications into a single dosage form for easier administration and improved compliance.
- Medications that are not commercially available.
Our compounding laboratory is located in Auburn, Sydney.

Our compounding pharmacy can formulate suitable medications as sublingual drops, oral and nasal sprays, lollipops, rectal solutions and suppositories, and other customized dosage forms.
The efficacy of any formulation is directly related to its preparation, which is why the selection of your compounding pharmacy is critical. Ongoing training for compounding pharmacists and technicians, state-of-the-art equipment, and high quality chemicals are essential. Experience and ingenuity are important factors as well. When tweaking a formula or developing a unique preparation, the compounding pharmacist must consider physical and chemical properties of both the active ingredient and excipients, solubility, tonicity, viscosity, and the most appropriate dosage form or device for administering the needed medication. Standard Operating Procedures should be in place, stability studies should be considered when compounding, and appropriate potency and sterility testing should be performed.
