Take advantage of Specialty Compounding when off-the-shelf just won't do.
There are times when your doctor or another health practitioner will prescribe something that doesn't come straight off the pharmacy shelf. When that happens, your neighbourhood Rexall Pharmacist turns to his or her roots – as a skilled alchemist.
A Proud Tradition – The Apothecary
Before the creation of the modern pharmaceutical system, doctors would hand their patient a handwritten prescription that consisted of a list of medicinal ingredients that needed to be combined in exactly the proper amounts. The patient would then visit the nearest retail shop with a skilled apothecary who would take the list of herbs, chemicals and other ingredients and combine them just so in order to produce the necessary medication.
