Medicine is the field that has helped humans to live healthy lives. Due to advancements in medicine, the average lifespan of a person has been increased and they were able to live a comfortable life. And when we talk about medicine the first thing that will come to our mind is the pharmacy. The pharmacy in Berwick is the place where you get the medicine of your need. Usually, whenever you go to some pharmacy you will notice that they have thousands of medicines in their stocks, and you will be finding standardized packaging for each of them. No doubt the pharmacy feast like a retail store of medicine and in one shot it indeed is. But there can be scenarios where you will be needing different dosages for medicine other than standard sizes or dosages. The regular pharmacy practice will not be able to serve you. 

To fill such customized and specific needs of the patient the compounding pharmacy comes in, the compounding pharmacy is somehow the branch of a pharmacy where the medicines are given to the patient as per their customized requirement. For example, a doctor has had prescribes 5 mg of the specific tablet to their patient but in a regular pharmacy, the 5 tablets come in the dosage of 20 or 25 mg. Now the patient will be unable to proportionate the 5 mg from the regular tablet so they will be needing the help of a compounding pharmacy where a pharmacist will use the same ingredients and formula as the original tablet and can help to make the smaller tablet of 5 mg for their patient. This will help patients to get the right dosage of their tablet and it will also reduce the wastage of the medicine. There are still a few essential reasons that the compounding pharmacy is still in practice and sometimes it becomes the need of the time. For some diseases, the doctor will suggest a combination of two different medicines. 

  1. There can be a problem for a person to take two different medicines at different times and it is difficult for them to keep track of their dosage. In a compounding pharmacy, the same problem can be overcome by combining the formula of two medicine and converting them into a single tablet. This will help patients who will be taking a single tablet by getting the effect of both the medicines. This can be a very easy solution for elderlies who were unable to keep track of their medicine intake properly
  2. The compounding pharmacy can be a blessing for the children because there will be many children’s medicine or cereals that might be better and it is difficult for the parents to give those syrups to their children. But with help of a compounding pharmacy, those syrups can be mixed with some other flavours that might be liked by children and drinking their syrup becomes their fun time.

In case of certain diseases, the right medicine can only be prepared with the help of a compounding pharmacy. Because there can be a certain number of medicines that need to be taken at a single time and that can only be possible when they were compounded together.
