Prescribing Compounded Medication
Here are the 4 ways to write a compounding prescription:
Perhaps the easiest way to fill a compounding prescription is to give us a call. Our pharmacists will work with you to make sure the compounded medication is properly filled. We will ask for details such as:
Since customization is key, we would like to know how many doses per day is preferred by the patient. The route of administration may also be specified. This includes topical, oral, or sublingual medications. We will then formulate the custom prescription based on patient preference, prescriber recommendation, and pharmacist consultation.
Most Electronic Medical Records (EMR) are not set up to handle compounded medications. However, we can fill compounded prescriptions using already existing fields. Use the “Drug” and “Notes” fields to add specifications for the compounded medication:
If you fill out these fields with the necessary information you will be able to successfully fill a compounded prescription. Our pharmacy always checks the notes section in order to insure the needs of the patient are being met.
Two options are available when faxing in your compounded prescription:
Once you’ve chosen the preferred form, choose your preferred location (Cherry Creek or Littleton) and send it over to our pharmacy.
Our final option may not be the most convenient but is always available for patients who may prefer it. Simply hand the prescription to the patient and they may come to our pharmacy and have it filled out. Easy as that!
It’s easy to reach out. Simply call the location you prefer and get in touch with one of our knowledgeable pharmacists (Littleton or Cherry Creek). You may also fill out the form on this page. We usually reply within one business day.
