RAKOTY PHARMACY COMPOUNDING LABORATORY
Compounding is the art & science of preparing personalized medications through mixing of individual ingredients together in the exact strength & dosage form required by the patient.
At Rakoty Pharmacy, we work with various health care practitioners to provide YOU with what commercial drug manufacturers either can not or will not provide any longer. It is actually the role that pharmacies served years ago before mass drug manufacturing was introduced in the 50 s & 60s. The fact that we are not exactly the same makes it difficult for manufactured products to meet all needs. Compounding can provide you with a medication that has a specific strength,size & dosage form customized specially to meet your specific needs.
• ALTERED DOSAGE FORM & STRENGTH:

Also in some cases where oral administration is a problem such as vomiting changing the drug dosage form e.g into suppository is the best solution.

- TOPICAL PAIN MANAGEMENT
Pain can be classified into nociceptive & neuropathic pain.NOCICEPTIVE PAIN :it is frequently caused by tissue damage or injurysuch as bone,muscles,skin or viscera.Instead of having to use oral anti-inflammatory medications & suffer from side effects such as gastrointestinal adverse effects & fluid retention ;topical anti-inflammatory creams or gels might be the solution as a less amount is absorbed into blood which means less systemic side effects & a higher concentration of the actual drug reaches the tissue that needs it.
