1. General Compounding Services
Superpharmacy has two compounding laboratories in our licensed Pharmacy facility with specially trained pharmacists compounding to Australian standards. We strive to deliver quality compounded medicines tailored to the individual needs of your patients. We offer a wide range of compounded medicines as outlined below.
2. Endocrine and Hormone Replacement Compounding Services
Hormonal balance in an aging population has become increasingly complex with individual tailored dosing needs for men and women. Our laboratory can provide tailored HRT therapies for individual patients by using lowest effective doses and novel delivery methods. Compounded HRT preparations can be made as capsules, troches, lozenges, creams, pessaries and vaginal applicators. The convenience of formulating multiple hormones in one preparation can further improve compliance and reduce additional costs.
3. Topical Pain Relief Compounding Services
Pain management can be challenging as tolerance, dependence and the risk of debilitating side effects compromise conventional pain therapy outcomes. In recent years, emerging clinical research has provided evidence for using alternative dosage forms to combat these issues, such as topical or transdermal pain creams customised to individual patient’s needs. Patients that suffer from chronic aches and pains with no great improvement, may find topical analgesic creams to be an effective alternative for delivering concentrated topical targeted pain relief. Considering also that topical pain relief therapies circumvent first-pass hepatic metabolism, a transdermal mode of delivery can help deliver lower effective dose responses whilst reducing potential side effects such as sedation, nausea and vomiting.
4. Dermatology Compounding Services
Treating challenging skin conditions can be a long and trying process for both prescribers and patients. Superpharmacy can facilitate formulations for creams, gels, paints, lotions and ointments to help control and treat chronic dermatological problems. We utilise a large formulation database to offer clinicians and specialists tailored therapies for individual patients with complex disease states that are intolerant or unresponsive to available treatments. Some of the most common dermatological conditions successfully treated by clinicians using our compounded preparations include, but are not limited to:
- Plaque-Type Psoriasis
- Nail Psoriasis
- Hair loss
- Callus and Wart Removal
- Topical Fungus
- Anti-Aging serum
5. Paediatric Compounding Services
Superpharmacy provides customised formulations, dosages, and flavourings to help facilitate paediatric patient therapy. Many oral formulations are not available in suitable liquid preparation for paediatric dosing these can easily be transformed into pleasantly flavoured dosage forms, dispensed in childproof packaging. Dozens of appealing flavours can be utilised to enhance the taste and appearance of a medication without altering the medication’s effectiveness. Our laboratory is capable of compounding medicines in several oral paediatric formulations such as:
- Oral liquids
- Gummy treats
- Topical gels
- Effervescent drinks
6. Palliative Care Compounding Services
Palliative care patients often experience challenging therapeutic needs. In many cases, traditional dosage forms are not always effective or practical. Alternative routes of administration can be utilized to help patients receive effective treatment. Our pharmacists are available to work with practitioners to develop a tailored solution to support patient therapeutic need and deliver symptom relief and comfort where appropriate.
