Okotoks HC Pharmacy has your complete health in mind. In addition to aids for daily living, the pharmacy takes the art of compounding to another level. Compounding is not just preparing prescriptions. It is a science that involves mixing the exact strength and dosage required for a patient’s specific need. Compounding was the original precursor to dispensing. As mass drug manufacturing took hold in the 1950s and 1960s, many pharmacists moved to dispensing the readily available produced medications. There is no doubt that these medications have provided greater access to care for many people, however, without compounding, some patient’s need are not met. Compounding allows for a much more specific dose and can be customized in everything from the flavour to the use of alternative/natural medications.Mobility, health, and pain management all go hand in hand. Okotoks HC Pharmacy strives to provide the best care and highest quality products so you can be as healthy and active as possible.
