• Question: Is there any way to provide doctors with compounded preparations they may need for patients in the office?


    Pharmacies may engage in anticipatory compounding (compounding prior to receiving a prescription) if done in quantities consistent with historical dispensing of those compounded preparations.  If a doctor frequently uses a compounded preparation in the office, a pharmacy may compound those preparations in advance and can label and deliver them to the doctor as soon as a patient-specific prescription is received.
