Please refer to our conditions of sale before ordering any product
* No medication will be compounded for you until a copy of your prescription has been received.
* Our pharmacy will hold any repeats the doctor has ordered for you on our files. When you start to run low of your medication you can reorder the next repeat by phone, fax, internet or e-mail.
* Once all repeats have been used a new prescription will be required, by law, for any further orders. The label on your dispensed prescription will indicate the number of repeats remaining on our files. Once it indicates “nil repeats” it is time to arrange another prescription with your doctor. Any new prescriptions may be sent to us where it will be kept on file until we are instructed to make up the next order.
When ordering any compounded product it is important that you specify any allergies so we can make your medication free of any problematic ingredients. Standard practice for us is to avoid lactose, gluten, artificial colors and flavors, etc in most of our products however to be sure please inform us of any allergies so we can ensure your order is suitable. On special request we can make:
* Lactose Free Capsules – all products for human use made in our laboratory are lactose free. We use microcrystalline cellulose as our standard filler however Vitamin C, magnesium, corn starch or rice powder are also available on special request. Additional charges may occur.
* Vegetable Capsules – “vege” capsules are available for those who chose not to ingest standard gelatin capsules at an additional fee.
* Coloring – we use no artificial coloring in any of our products, even the gelatin capsules we use are color free. Some products we sell may be colored as we use riboflavin (Vit B2) which is red in color for capsule identification.
* Flavoring – troches made in our laboratory are flavored using only natural oil extracts. You can chose from peppermint, spearmint, aniseed, lemon or orange flavors. Please specify which you prefer. We avoid all other flavoring agents even so called natural flavors which often contain unnatural ingredients. The natural sweetener herb stevia is used when required as we also avoid all artificial sweeteners.
* Troche/lozenge Base – we recommend the gelatin soft troche base however the hard PEG base is also available. Please specify which you prefer.
* Cream Base – the cream based made in our laboratory is free of nasty ingredients. Our cream base avoids the use of all petrolium based ingredients (paraffins), parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, propylene glycol, fragrances, artificial colors, waxes and heavy oils. For more information refer to our article Are your Cosmetics Causing you Harm.
* Cream Dispensers – Hormone creams are usually supplied in an airless pump jar which accurately dispenses 1/2g cream with each pump at no extra cost. These are accurate, convenient and easy to use. For those who do not use 0.5 or 1g doses we also supply creams either in a cosmetic cream jar with a 1ml spoon used to measure the dose or alternatively in an EMP jar with 1ml syringe. Please specify which you prefer when ordering.
