If you use the same types of compounded medications routinely, we can customize an easy to use template that you can photocopy and fax to us. We can also forward the template to your IT staff to add to your electronic prescribing software program. Or you can write it out on a regular Rx pad and fax to us. Whatever is easiest for you!
Always include a legibly printed name and phone number for both the prescriber and patient. We are here to help you. Never hesitate to call us to discuss a patient and their prescription – we can assist you before the patient leaves your office!
What happens once we receive your prescription?
Please remember that compounded medications are prepared to order and we do not begin preparing the medication until we have spoken with the patient for their approval. Once we have received a prescription, the patient is called and we review the medication being ordered, answer any questions they may have and tell them the cost. As soon as we receive the patient’s approval to make the medication, the Rx is prepared and dispensed. (Most prescriptions are prepared within 24-48 hours of patient approval.) Some frequently prescribed compounds could be ready for immediate pick-up (for example: Promethazine topical gel for nausea). After several quality control checkpoints, the compounded prescriptions will receive it’s final check. The medication will be shipped to the patient or we will call the patient to let them know their medication is ready to be picked up, depending on the patient’s preference. As a courtesy, we always call the patient to let them know their medication is ready for pick up.
