What is Compounding?

Compounding is creating customized medications from scratch to provide needed therapy when options are not available from pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Like a precise bakery for prescription medications, each batch is custom made. So if it needs to be sugar-free, gluten-free, color-free, lactose-free, gelatin-free, etc. we can compound it to each individual need.

We start with active pharmaceutical ingredients from FDA registered suppliers to ensure clean and effective medication. We then mix ingredients based on validated methods and formulations to ensure accuracy and maintain potency. This is all done in our dedicated compounding lab to safeguard the medication's purity.


What types of medications can you compound?

Topical Creams, Ointments, Gels, Oral liquids, Oral Suspensions, Nasal Sprays, Ear Drops, Sublingual liquids, Troches (lozenges), Vaginal creams, Vaginal suppositories, Rectal creams, Rectal Ointments, Vaginal Suppositories, Capsules, etc.

What types of medications are you NOT able to compound?

We are not set up to do sterile products, like injectables and eye drops.

How can my doctor send you a prescription?

Prescriptions can be sent via fax 419-756-3135, can be called in by the office 419-756-2559 or paper prescriptions may be dropped off.

How long does it typically take to make my customized prescription?

For routine medications we generally ask for 2-3 weekdays. This allows us to prioritize new prescriptions and medication needed for urgent conditions. Depending on the medication, each can take 1-3 hours to mix, solidify, & package each batch. All medication is made using special equipment that must be thoroughly cleaned between each batch. While these steps take extra time, it is imperative to the quality of the medication and the health of our patients.

Will my insurance pay for compounded medications?

It is best to check with your insurance company to determine what they will pay for. Generally, the coverage is not the same as traditional prescriptions and each plan is different. We are not able to bill insurance but we can provide you with the documentation needed to submit a claim for reimbursement. Submitting any type of claim does not guarantee reimbursement.

Do I need a prescription?

All compounded medications must have a prescription. Non-compounded over-the-counter medications, supplements, and vitamins do NOT need a prescription.
