The Chemist Pharmacy in Markham is a locally owned and operated compounding pharmacy serving the Markham areas and beyond. At The Chemist Pharmacy, we work together with patients and physicians to meet each individual’s specific needs. We do not offer a cookie-cutter approach to the pharmacy – we practice the age-old art of compounding “handmade” medications.
What is Compounding?
Compounding is the art and science of tailor-making medications for unique needs and preferences. It allows a physician to prescribe and a pharmacist to prepare medications into different dosage forms.
Our goal at TCP is to work closely with your physician to improve the outcome of your treatment and health.
THE BENEFITS OF COMPOUNDED MEDICATIONS
We can prepare medicines in a variety of dosage forms and flavours. With instructions from the physician, we can easily alter the strength of medications to make it more convenient for patients, thereby improving medication compliance. We bring our skills, knowledge and experience to improve therapeutic outcome.
Benefits of compounded medications include:
• Avoidance of dyes, preservative, fillers
• Palatable liquid medications
• Administrable dosage forms
• Avoidance of side effects
• Dose, dosage form, or medication not commercially available
• Combination or sustained-release therapy to improve compliance
• Cost-effective therapy
As you can see, compounding means that you are no longer limited in the choice of treatment. At TCP we work with you and your physician to create medications that suit you best.
