When a one-size-fits-all prescription isn't the best remedy, patients can count on OuRX Pharmacy to create customized medications to fit their unique needs

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Santa Monica compounding pharmacy, OuRX Pharmacy, Inc. is one of few independently-run stores of its kind in the Los Angeles area. The Santa Monica pharmacy dispenses specialized medications that can't be found at mass-producing pharmaceutical companies. Operated by Dr. Homayoon Khorsandi, OuRX has the dedication to personalized services and quality care that makes it the best compounding pharmacy in Los Angeles.

OuRX Pharmacy's capabilities are unparalleled. Customers are able to find many off-the-shelf drugs as well as access many customized medications prescribed by their physician. In fact, some medications can be combined into one pill, which can increase medication compliance. Some of these include:

  • Sterile injectables
  • Sterile compound of ophthalmic drugs
  • Pain management topical products
  • Flavoring oral suspensions and liquids
  • Skincare and cosmetics
  • Numbing creams for laser hair removal
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Suppositories
  • Urology/sexual dysfunction products

OuRX pharmacy is registered with the California Board of Pharmacy-which strictly regulates and carefully licenses both pharmacies and pharmacists-and has special licensing for the preparation of sterile injectables and compound medications. For more than 15 years, patients who are allergic to specific preservatives, dyes, fillers or ingredients in prescribed drugs or have similar special needs can find an advocate in OuRX Pharmacy.

Specialized medications are also available for pediatric patients in need of lower dosages or flavoring of oral liquids; and elderly patients who may not be able to swallow pills also can benefit from a compounding pharmacy that can make smaller-sized pills or suppositories. All of the active ingredients used in OuRX Pharmacy's compounding come from an FDA-approved pharmaceutical wholesaler, and are handled by experienced pharmacists who prepare these medications in a sterile, safe environment.

Another feature that makes OuRX unique is 24/7 drug counseling for patients who need further information on how to take their medication. This means patients who want a more direct role in the patient-doctor-pharmacist relationship are encouraged to explore the convenience of OuRX Pharmacy. The OuRX team can also deliver orders through US Mail, UPS, FedEx, and more, further streamlining the sometimes daunting process of refilling prescriptions.

Plus, OuRX Pharmacy has all of the features found in a conventional pharmacy, such as a vast inventory of over-the-counter medications, cosmetics and durable medical equipment. Regular prescriptions can be filled, as well, in a friendly environment with minimal wait times, by pharmacists who are eager to help you learn more about how to properly take the medication, whether it's a multivitamin, pill, injectable, homeopathic remedy, cream, eye drop or suppository.

The main benefit of compounding pharmacies is that personalized medication provides overall better health. OuRX accepts most health insurances, including Medicare Part D, and the staff is knowledgeable about the Affordable Healthcare Act (also known as Obamacare) and how it may affect patients.
