SPECIALTY COMPOUNDING

Specialty Compounding

Every patient has different requirements and preferences, whether it be dosage availability, allergy to dyes, flavouring preferences, or even swallowing issues. For all these problems… compounding is the solution!

What We Do

As a compounding pharmacy, Macdonald’s Prescriptions #3 will work with your physician to prepare specialized medication for you, your children, or even your pet. Our pharmacy specializes in several custom compounding services, including:

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) Bio-Identical Hormones

Hormone replacement therapy can be hugely beneficial in relieving women’s menopausal symptoms. Our compounding pharmacist will work closely with you and your doctor, helping to create and maintain a customized HRT regime that brings your hormones back in to balance, safely and naturally. Once the therapy has started, we will monitor your progress to ensure the HRT is functioning at peak performance, adjusting the dosage if necessary.

Pain Management

Struggling with pain can be debilitating, whether it is acute pain or chronic conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, and other nerve and muscle pain. What’s more, many medications can result in a host of unwanted side effects, including drowsiness, dizziness, and stomach irritation. We can compound a medicine that will assist you and your health care provider to create an effective pain management program with fewer side effects.

Pet Medication

As a pet owner you know how challenging it can be to get your cat or dog to take their medication. If you are looking for an effective solution to this problem, compounding offers a variety of options to make medicating your pet quick and easy. From a wide assortment of flavoured medications to customized dosage forms and amounts, our pharmacists will work closely with you and your veterinarian to ensure your pet receives the highest quality health care.

Flavour Compounding

Many patients simply don’t like taking their medicine. From a child who hates the taste of cough syrup to a pet that refuses to swallow their pill, taking unpleasant tasting medications can be a challenge for anyone—but it doesn’t have to be. Flavouring challenges can be resolved through compounding. Our compounding pharmacists can easily create a customized medication that tastes great, helping patients take their medicine on time and without fail—humans and pets alike. Macdonald’s Prescriptions #3 has access to a wide variety of flavour combinations to make bad tasting medicine a thing of the past.

COMPLIANCE PACKAGING

COMPLIANCE PACKAGING

Do you or your loved ones have trouble remembering to take medications at the proper time of day?

We package medications and supplements in weekly compliance packages to help you live independently and reduce medication errors. There is no extra fee for this valuable prescription service.

Why Use Compliance Packaging?

Medication dosages can be complicated, especially if you are taking several medications, multiple times a day. And with today’s busy lifestyle, even one medication can be tricky to remember. When medications are missed or taken at the wrong time, you could suffer from unwanted symptoms or run the risk of your prescriptions not working at all.

At Macdonald’s Prescription #3, our compliance packaging services will help ensure that you receive the optimal dosing and compliance of all your prescription medications. We will create a compliance pack tailored to your prescription needs, refilling it weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly in consultation with your healthcare professional.

What Are The Benefits Of Compliance Packaging?

Here are some import benefits of compliance packages for patients and/or caregivers:

SAFETY: The patient receives the right medications at the right times. You won’t have to worry about double dosing or missed dosing.

ADHERENCE: It is easy to keep track of when to take your medications, and you can easily see if there were any missed doses.

CONVENIENCE: Organizing your medications on your own will be a thing of the past. Take the guess work out of when to take your medications.

TRAVEL: When you travel, you may not want to take all your medication and supplement bottles, especially now that you have to pay for most luggage. Still, to avoid issues with customs, you need to make sure your pills are not randomly thrown into plastic baggies. Compliance packaging gives you the best of both worlds—compactness and official pharmacy packaging.

Who Are Compliance Packages For?

Compliance packaging is for anyone who wants to ensure they are taking their medications properly, including:

  • Patients taking 3 or more medications, multiple times a day
  • Seniors using chronic condition medications
  • Patients with memory deficiency
  • Patients who travel internationally

Compliance packages will not only help manage your medication treatment, but can also save lives.

COMPRESSION & LYMPHEDEMA GARMENTS

COMPRESSION GARMENTS

People may develop venous insufficiency because of hereditary factors, increasing age, or hormonal changes. Others may have primary or secondary lymphedema that needs ongoing care. Compression stockings and garments are amongst the most successful and simplest means of promoting and maintaining healthy venous circulation, as well as controlling edema.

At Macdonald’s Prescriptions #3, we have certified fitters and expert garment fitters with the experience to guide you to choose suitable compression socks or stockings, compression sleeves, and other custom fit garments appropriate for your lifestyle and needs.

What Are Compression Stockings?

Do you have tired, aching legs? Do your ankles swell? Do you have a job that requires you to sit or stand for a long time? Do you travel by airplane? Compression stockings can help ease everyday stress and strain on your legs. They work by applying external pressure to the legs to help pump blood back up to your heart—improving circulation!

Why Wear Compression Stockings?

Wearing compression stockings is vital for the prevention and treatment of a number of common issues, including edema, varicose veins, lymphedema, phlebitis, and other circulatory problems. They are also ideal for everyday people who stand or sit for extended periods of time. Compression stockings are also helpful for physically active individuals wanting to boost circulation during marathons, biking, and other activities.

Compression Garment Specialists

Macdonald’s Prescriptions #3 provides unparalleled compression garments fitting services. Our trained and certified compression stocking fitter will properly measure your legs and choose the stockings that are right for you. We carry all the latest high quality compression stockings and garments, available in wide assortment of colours, shapes, and sizes for both males and females.
