Prescribing Compounded Medication

A prescription is required for all compounded medications. Doctors, veterinarians, dentists and nurse practitioners should inform patients they have been prescribed compounded medications because there are no commercial “off-the-shelf” products available to meet their individual requirements.

A prescription for a compounded medication should include:

  • The patient’s details
  • Dosage and drug required
  • Dosage form (e.g. transdermal, suspension, capsules etc.)
  • Length of treatment or quantity required
  • Signature of the prescriber

Veterinary prescriptions should also include:

  • The type of animal
  • The animal’s date of birth
  • The animal’s weight
  • The owner’s details (name and address)
