My Canadian Pharmacy offers medications specially prepared by pharmacists to meet the individual needs of the patient.
Extrusion formulation (Latin “ex tempore” – as needed) – a term adopted in pharmaceutical practice to refer to dosage forms that are made directly in a pharmacy by prescription for a specific patient.
We can prepare for you:
- Drops and solutions for internal and external use;
- Powders dosed;
- Ointments, pastes;
- Solutions for injection;
- Eye drops;
- Emulsions, suspensions, liniments;
- Infusions and decoctions;
Advantages of specialty compounding
The ability to choose the dosage for each individual patient and at the same time take into account ALL of its features (allergies, problems with the kidneys, liver, heart, etc.) – this is the main and most important argument in favor of extrusion formulation since not all drugs manufactured at the factory can be used by different patients.
Who needs specialty compounding?
In the United States, 30–40 million medicines are manufactured annually according to doctor’s prescriptions. Such popularity among medical professionals is due to several factors. Preparations made in a pharmacy are more effective when you consider that they are prescribed by a doctor and manufactured by a pharmacist, taking into account the individual characteristics of the patient, while factory-made preparations are intended for the average patient. In addition, they are of higher quality – it is always possible to establish who, when and how made each capsule, each solution, etc. Preparations made in My Canadian Pharmacy are safer: the level of preparation and responsibility of pharmacists is very high because they are in direct contact with the patient and the doctor. Patients who need individual preparations are, first of all, children who need to adjust the dose of the drug substance depending on their age. You can break a tablet into two relatively equal parts but not into nine or eighteen equal parts. Therefore, no mother will give her child a piece of a pill to prevent an overdose.
Our pharmacists often have to make preparations for children in the form of mixtures, syrups, and powders. This ensures the necessary dosing accuracy and ease of use.
