Over forty years compounding experience.

Pittwater Pharmacy also specialises in compounding medications, with facilities to compound capsules, creams, ointments, solutions, troches, pessaries, and mouth gels. This provides an extra service to the community, being able to make products specifically for the individual or those that have been discontinued or out of stock. Raw ingredients are sourced nationally and internationally to provide a large variety of products that patients need, with some only available overseas. Other benefits include the preparation of medications in a liquid suspension for enhanced administration, accurate alteration of doses and added flavours for palatability. Some flavours include apple, banana, caramel, and peppermint. All compounding is done on site by a pharmacist, or a trained technician under the supervision of a pharmacist. Pittwater Pharmacy has a fast turnaround time of under two working days, with many compounds being available for pick up on the same day.
