Atara Compounding Pharmacy collaborates with IvyMed Clinic that focuses on alternative treatments for people who have not found relief from other options. This may include allied health, supplements or plant based medicines like medicinal cannabis.
Compounded medicines play an important role in servicing patient needs not met by big pharma. Compounded products can be prescribed for individual patients according to their specific needs, including allergies and swallowing issues. The benefits of this with medicinal cannabis is that both the strength and ratio of CBD and THC can be individualised according to each patient. Even the choice of flavour can be personalised. Close collaboration between prescriber, patient and compounder can play an important role in improving treatment outcomes with medicinal cannabis.
