Additional Compounding Information

Compounded medications take additional time for us to prepare due to the the specialized processes involved and the attention to detail that is required.  Compounded prescriptions will usually be ready 24 hours after the prescription is brought in Monday through Friday.

Before we begin the compounding process, please let us know of any restrictions you may have such as food and drug allergies or medical conditions.  John’s Pharmacy is committed to providing high-quality compounded medications in the dosage form and strength prescribed by your physician.

Please Note: The Food and Drug Administration has stated that compounded prescriptions are both ethical and legal as long as they are prescribed by a licensed practitioner for a specific patient and compounded by a licensed pharmacy.  In addition, the state board of pharmacy regulates compounding.
