Not always medications produced by the pharmaceutical industry are suitable for the patient, taking into account individual dosages, age, the course of therapy, associated diseases, and intolerance to the components.
The value of extemporaneous (compounded) formulations for a wide range of consumers lies in the manufacture of drugs taking into account the characteristics of the patient. The importance of extemporaneous formulations increases in the face of growing allergic diseases due to the deteriorating ecology, with individual intolerance to factory-produced drugs, as well as in the absence of analogs of factory pharmaceutical production.
For a large metropolis, it is important to preserve and use the traditions of the manufacture of medicines in pharmacies: they use the most natural and safe ingredients; individually manufactured medicines do not contain toxic elements, chemical dyes and preservatives. Those who monitor their health appreciate this.
The process of drug compounding is complicated and time-consuming, a pharmacy technician performs a complete chemical and organoleptic analysis. In developed countries, it is recognized that a medicine made by the hands of a pharmacist according to an individual prescription is much more effective than an analog of industrial manufacture (from the point of view of biopharmaceuticals). The domestic pharmacopeia has about three hundred prescriptions for the preparation of medicines in pharmacies. Two-thirds of these drugs, according to pharmacists, have no industrial counterparts.
Unfortunately, compounding service is currently unavailable at City Center Pharmacy but we hope soon you will be able to order individual drugs through our online store.
