How much does a compounding prescription cost?
Every compounded prescription is formulated and made uniquely for each patient. It is because of this variation in composition of each medicine, that the coast of each medicine will also be different. When the pharmacist contacts you about a prescription they will also inform you of the cost associated with it. Don't be concerned though as at Prime, You can always be assured by our lowest price guarantee.
How long does it take to make a compounded prescription?
The time taken to make a compounded prescription also varies depending on its complexity. From start to finish for a new prescription, it can take anywhere up to 4 hours to price, formulate, dispense, compound and finish the medicine.
How long will it be before I receive my medication?
Once we have received a visual copy of the prescription and payment, we will immediately start the compounding process. This can take as little as 30 minutes to complete. In 95% of cases, any prescription received before midday will be posted the same day. All prescriptions will be express posted and so will be delivered Australia wide the next business day.
