How are compounds packaged?

It depends on the compound. Capsules go into regular prescription vials. Lollipops are sealed in a plastic sleeve and dispensed with child proof containers. Suppositories are sealed in plastic moulds. If you feel your patient needs specific packaging, let us know and we will accommodate them.

How do I order a compound for my patient?

Just write a prescription like you would for any other medication. If you aren't sure which compound would help your patient, or you aren't sure what we can make for your patient, call us at 204-638-4602. We would love to help out.

How long does it take to make a compound?

It depends on how complicated the compound is. In general, we tell patients a custom compound will take 24 hours to prepare. If there is an urgent need, we will make every effort to get it made faster. Sterile products and compounds requiring special order ingredients may take longer to make.

How does the compound get to my patient?

Compounds can be picked up or delivered directly to the patient.

Are compounds covered by health plans?

Many compounds are covered by private and public health plans.
