A Guide for Providers and Prescribers

Compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications (ingredient doses, mode of application, etc.) to better suit what patients need. Many medical providers and specialists look for alternative options in compounding when current meds are not available, contain allergens, or fail.

We Work With Providers for Prescription Compounding

Community Clinical understands that medication is not one-size-fits-all. We make our compounded medications specifically for your individual patients’ needs. Our experts are happy to consult with prescribers that have questions about their patient cases. Oftentimes their patients are not getting results or are allergic to commercially available medications.

How Do You Write a Compounded Medication Prescription?

What do compounding pharmacists need when looking to prescribe compounded medications?

1. The Generic Name of Active Ingredients / Strength or Dose

Control what active ingredients are present. Remove ingredients that the patient may have been allergic to in mass-produced medications. Consult with an expert pharmacist for any questions.

2. Dosage Form

Your patients have different needs and this may include the form of the medication. Whether it be pills, syrups, troches, injectables, suppositories, or other modes of application, Community Clinical can formulate for maximized efficiency and patient compliance.

3. Quantity

Specify the amount per prescription container and any refills that you authorize.

4. Directions for Use

Information for patients to follow when taking the medication. Specify when the medication should be taken, the amount, how it should be taken/administered (with food, etc.), and any pertinent information. Please consult with an expert pharmacist for any questions.
