Compounding is the art and science of tailor making medications for unique needs and preferences. A compounding chemist is a pharmacist who prepares human and veterinary medication into different dosage forms. These may be troche, lozenge, capsules, transdermal gels and creams, suppository and pessary dosage forms.
Most of these require a Doctor's prescription and are customised to your needs and can contain more than one medication in this dosage form. We can also compound medications that are no longer commercially available. Our goal is to work closely with your doctor to improve the outcome of your treatment and health.
 
 

Ringing in the Ears

      Millions of people have some degree of tinnitus, described as a ringing, buzzing, whooshing, or humming sound in the ears. Tinnitus isn't a disease but rather a symptom that can be caused by a number of medical conditions, age-related hearing loss or ear injury. Although the noise of tinnitus may be annoying, the condition is rarely a warning of a serious problem. If tinnitus is due to a health condition, a doctor may be able to take steps to reduce the noise, such as removing impacted earwax or correcting the underlying problem. If a medication appears to be the cause, a doctor may recommend a change in dose or switching to a different medication. Researchers at the University of Iowa reported three possible mechanisms may link zinc deficiency to tinnitus. Four of five small studies indicate that administration of zinc has a beneficial effect on tinnitus but these results still have to be confirmed in larger clinical trials. One small study found that blood zinc levels were lower than normal in 31% of patients before treatment. After 2 months of treatment with zinc 50 mg orally each day, clinically favorable progress was detected in 46.4% of patients.
