Compounding is the art and science of tailor making medications for unique needs and preferences. A compounding chemist is a pharmacist who prepares human and veterinary medication into different dosage forms. These may be troche, lozenge, capsules, transdermal gels and creams, suppository and pessary dosage forms.
Most of these require a Doctor's prescription and are customised to your needs and can contain more than one medication in this dosage form. We can also compound medications that are no longer commercially available. Our goal is to work closely with your doctor to improve the outcome of your treatment and health.
 
 

Co-Q10 May Relieve Muscle Pain Caused by Statin Drugs

       Myalgia (muscle pain) is the most frequently reported adverse side effect associated with statin (atorvastatin, simvastatin) therapy to lower cholesterol, and often necessitates a reduction in dose, or the cessation of therapy. Muscle pain may be related in part to statin inhibition of the body’s production of coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone, Co-Q10), an essential factor for cellular energy production. The American Journal of Cardiology reported a double-blind study of 18 patients with statin-related muscle pain who were treated with 100 mg/day of Co-Q10. After 30 days, the patients taking Co-Q10 reported a 40% decrease in pain severity and a 38% decrease in the interference of pain in their daily activities. In conclusion, results suggest that coenzyme Q10 supplementation may decrease muscle pain associated with statin treatment. As with all supplements, the choice of preparation is key to the success of therapy, so ask our professional staff to recommend a quality product.
