FAQ For Prescribers

When regular prescriptions are not getting the results your patient needs, compounded medications offer a more individualized approach. By creating a medication specifically for an individual patient, you can develop a treatment regimen that better addresses their unique needs and challenges. For many conditions, mass-produced formulations are lacking or they are difficult to find in the exact dosage or strength your patient needs. Custom-tailored medications expand your treatment choices and provide more possibilities with tricky patients.

In addition, studies show compounded medications to generally have higher compliance rates than mass-produced options. Patients become more compliant with your prescribed therapy and achieve the therapeutic outcome desired. Prescribing compounded medications for your patients lets your patient know that you are treating them as an individual and are not pigeonholing them into a “one-size-fits-all” therapy. This can strengthen your relationship with your patient and improve patient care and satisfaction.

Pure Compounding Pharmacy independently re-certifies our technicians and tests our compounds through a 3rd party laboratory to ensure they meet and exceed potency and quality requirements on a regular basis.

At Pure Compounding Pharmacy, we compound in our cutting-edge, clean lab facilities, not in the back of a retail pharmacy that is open to the public. Our pharmacists even conduct extensive research on ingredients and drug therapies and regularly re-train in the latest compounding techniques to ensure the best medication is provided to your patients. Most pharmacists do not have this type of needed expertise.

Most pharmacy chains only dispense pre-made pills and other treatments in standard doses. Pure Compounding Pharmacy custom-makes every prescription for the individual patient. The top-grade active pharmaceutical ingredients are the same, but Pure Compounding Pharmacy medications have personalized doses, unique application methods, and hypoallergenic inactive ingredients that may make an individual’s treatment more effective.

No. Prescribing a compounded medication is pretty much like prescribing any conventional medication. We have a convenient e-scribe system (prescriber portal) that allows you to quickly upload all the information we need to prepare the medication for your patient— all without additional time spent on the phone.  Give us a call to learn more and set up a prescriber portal for your practice.

There are three simple ways to prescribe a custom medication from Pure Compounding Pharmacy:

1. Use Our Easy E-Scribe System

At Pure Compounding Pharmacy, we accept (and prefer to receive) prescriptions through our simple e-scribing system. You can easily fill out the fields required in the same manner that you would use your in-house EMR (Electronic Medical Records) system for any other traditional pharmaceutical.

Key Pure Compounding Pharmacy EMR Data:

  • Copy and paste the appropriate compound in the “Message” or “Notes to the Pharmacist” field

Pure Compounding Pharmacy uses the LifeFile E-Scribe System. In most cases, it is easy to seamlessly integrate the system you currently use in your office with LifeFile’s system. Our tech team is happy to help get you up and running to make prescribing compounds with Pure Compounding Pharmacy as easy as possible.

Often, yes. The Pure Compounding Pharmacy team has pharmacists with years of experience developing new treatments, all of whom are dedicated to helping you improve patient care. We are happy to work with you to find the best option for even the trickiest patients. In fact, our innovative medications have often been able to improve treatment outcomes even in cases where traditional pharmaceuticals have failed to achieve desired results.

After a new medication is prescribed, we begin compounding the medication according to your prescription. After development and several quality-control verifications, one of our  pharmacists will do a final check on the medication and approve it for delivery. This process takes no more than 24 hours after a prescription order is received (in most cases shipped out the same day as order is received).

Your Prescriber Portal will keep you posted on the entire workflow process from the prescription being sent to the patient’s doorstep. We compound and ship all orders within 1 business day.

At Pure Compounding Pharmacy, we have a robust patient compliance program that alerts us when a prescription should be refilled so we can call and remind patients who have not set up automatic refills. In addition, we can let you know when a patient seems like they may not be in compliance if you prefer to be directly involved in our patient compliance efforts.  The Prescriber Portal also allows you to see what we see.

Compounded medications offer personalized care, which means they are often more convenient and achieve better results for patients.

Yes, some compounding pharmacies have received deserved negative press due to risking patient health, but these have been limited to specific pharmacies that did not live up to proper quality and safety standards. Our compounded medications go through at least three verifications before they are released to patients.  Pure Compounding Pharmacy promises never to deliver anything but top-tier patient care. You can trust us with your patients’ health because we put safety and quality first.

What Is a Compounded Medication?

Compounded medication has been around since the early 1900s—but since the advent of modern pharmacies, not as many people are familiar with how it works. What is a compound medication? It is a medication custom created by a licensed pharmacist, typically a variation of a commercially available drug.

Some people may need to have ingredients removed or added, a custom dose, or the medication delivered in a different form than may be available commercially. If you or a family member, including children and pets, are having a hard time getting medication to work for you, a compounded medication can be an effective—and safe—solution.

What Are Compounded Medications Used For?

A compounding pharmacy can formulate medications for a variety of reasons. They use a prescription from a doctor to create a medication that can best help the patient by making the medicine easier to take, more effective, and by eliminating side effects.

Compounded medication services include meeting several patient needs, including:

  • A customized dose that is not available commercially.
  • Removed or adjusted inactive ingredients due to side effects or allergies, including sugar, gluten, dyes, alcohol, and lactose.
  • Added flavoring to make the medication easier for a child or pet to take it.
  • Changing the form of medication to a different medium that is easier to take or reduces side effects. Medication can be presented as a tablet, lotion, gel, liquid, powder, etc. Some patients may experience digestive problems with oral pain medication, for example, and prefer a topical option.

Why Choose a Compounded Medication?

Many people choose compound medication for the benefits of customized medicine, including:

  • Medication formulated to exclude an ingredient such as sugar, alcohol, gluten, dyes, preservatives, and more.
  • The option to combine the active ingredients of many pills into one or two compound pills, to reduce the amount of medication a person takes.
  • Custom strengths or dosages, if an appropriate dosage is not commercially available. Sometimes children, babies, or adults need lower or custom doses.
  • Hormone treatments can be customized to the exact needs of each patient. PURE specializes in these and other services.
  • Help for children or pets who may struggle to take needed medicine, which can be compounded into a different form or flavor.
  • Customized pain relief, including topical medication.
  • Side effects can be reduced—for example, if a medicine causes an upset stomach, it can be reformulated to a smaller dose, a topical medication, or without the triggering ingredient.

What kinds of prescriptions can be compounded?

Almost any kind! Compounded prescriptions are ideal for any patient requiring unique dosages and/or delivery devices. Compounding applications can include:

  • Dermatology
  • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
  • Pain management
  • Dentistry
  • Veterinary
  • Hospice
  • Pediatrics
  • Otic (for the ear)
  • Medication flavoring
  • Neuropathy
  • Sports medicine

There are several reasons why prescribers and pharmacists provide compounded medications for patients. The primary reason for compounding is to avoid patient non-compliance, which means the patient is either unable or unwilling to use the medication as directed. Many patients are allergic to preservatives or dyes, or require a dosage that is different from the standard drug strengths.

Who Can Compound Medications?

Compounded medications are formulated in a compound medication pharmacy by licensed, professional pharmacists who have been trained in best practices. These pharmacists are licensed by state boards and fulfill prescriptions written by medical doctors to best meet the needs and health requirements of individual patients.

A compound medication pharmacy uses quality and clean ingredients, instruments, and procedures to formulate medications. All licensed pharmacists receive some degree of training and education in compounding, and the ones who work in a compounding pharmacy have additional experience in mixing materials and using the tools of the trade. These tools might include a mortar and pestle, cylinders and balances for measuring, and spatulas and ointment slabs for mixing.

Why is there a need for compounding pharmacies

The answer is simple: Commercially manufactured medications aren’t appropriate for everyone. That’s where compounding pharmacists come in. They can create a drug that will achieve the same benefit of a commercially created one, but specifically tailored to the patient.

The name refers to “compounds,” which are formulations of pharmaceutical ingredients that can be customized to a patient’s specific needs. That could involve removing an allergen or adding a flavor.

Compounding Pharmacy vs Traditional Pharmacy: What’s the Difference?

It’s easy to confuse a compounding pharmacy with a standard pharmacy. But what is a compounding pharmacy, and what is the difference between a compounding pharmacy vs a regular pharmacy? Both types of pharmacies prepare medications prescribed for a patient by a doctor. The main difference is that a traditional pharmacy provides commercial medications in standardized dosages, while a compounding pharmacy can customize medication based on a patient’s specific needs. Let’s learn more about compounding pharmacies vs regular pharmacies.

What Is a Compounding Pharmacy?

The traditional role of a compounding pharmacy is to create medications using custom doses, ingredients, and forms to best meet the needs of a patient. The modern compounding pharmacy has its roots in the 19th century when doctors would both prescribe a medication and then make it for their patients. As time went on, the practice of medicine and pharmacy separated, and today drugs are manufactured on a mass scale. But while these commercial medications work for most, some patients need the individual customization of a compounding pharmacy. 

Today, the key differences between a compounding pharmacy vs regular pharmacy include the following points.

1. Different Forms of the Same Medication

At a compounding pharmacy, you can choose what form your medication comes in, including:

  • Liquid
  • Powder
  • Cream
  • Capsule
  • Ointment

You might want your medication to come in a different form because of allergies or intolerances. For example, an oral medication may irritate your digestive system, but a powder or cream can deliver relief without unwanted side effects.

2. Medications for Children and Pets

Compounding pharmacies create specialty drugs for children and pets, who are typically finicky when it comes to taking their medications. If you are struggling to convince your child or pet to take a needed medication, a compounding pharmacy can offer a powder form that you can hide in their food, or they can customize the flavor to make it more palatable.

3. Customized Dosages

Commercial medications have standardized dosages. If you need a dosage that is not commercially available, a compounding pharmacy can create it for you. Dosages can be customized to your age, weight, medical condition, and sensitivity to side effects.

If you have concerns about your medications or trouble finding help for your health conditions, contact PURE today.

Ready to Learn More?

Compounding pharmacies have an important role to play in helping you have a more positive experience with your medication. If a commercial drug is not available, doesn’t work for your needs, or has challenging side effects, a compounding pharmacy can help find a solution.
