Compounds or mixtures are most often used to treat pain, rashes and even hemorrhoids. Typically, most simple compounds don't take too much time. However, some complex mixtures that can include several ingredients may take additional time to formulate. If for any reason we do not have one of the ingredients, we will let you know and you may have to wait until the next day to pick it up. It's best to ask your Pharmacist for an estimated time when you request your compound be mixed.
Sometimes when tablets are too big or doses are inflexible (for example, the drug manufacturer only makes certain doses), we can compound bulk ingredients into a liquid for ingestion. Whatever the reason, we can usually find a way to accommodate you - whether a disease state has caused a swallowing problem, a young child can’t swallow a large tablet, or just plain old preference, at Pembina Valley Pharmacy we will work with you to find a solution.
