How to Work with Us

We know how important it is for patients to receive their prescription medications on time. We’ve worked hard to develop efficient processes to ensure that patients and practitioners receive medications when they expect them and in perfect condition.

For Physician’s Office Orders:

The first step is to set up your account with us. Each physical address must have an active account with Central Drugs. Complete the Account Information form and provide us a photocopy of your DEA and State License. We will notify you to confirm that your account has been established and provide you with our pricing, order form, and patient specific information form, if mandated by your state.

Once your account is approved, you may place an order. We will always call to confirm receipt of an order and discuss the cost and estimated delivery date. Shipping options will also be arranged at the time of confirming your order. We process orders between 9 am and 6 pm Monday through Friday, Pacific Standard Time.

Have a question? Your account representative, Kathy Dunne and Cheryl Foster can answer your pricing questions and provide standard and customized order forms.

For questions regarding your order, you can reach a Pharmacy Tech/Customer Service Representative at 877-447-7077. Please ask to speak with someone to place an office order. If you prefer, you may leave a message at #104 or #105. You may email officeorders@centraldrugsrx.com providing no patient information is disclosed. We can email you price lists, but please understand that the price of compounds are subject to change.

All orders must be faxed to 562.694.3869. Order forms are available from your account representative or on our website. Please indicate the date on which you would like to receive the medications. We will do everything we can to deliver your medications by the requested date. Compounded Medications can take around 5-7 business days in production.

For Patient Prescriptions:

When the prescription is submitted to Central Drugs via fax, e-script, or phone, a pharmacy clerk calls the patient in under an hour to verify insurance information, discuss pricing, payment options, and confirm the patient’s preferred method of shipment. We offer very competitive pricing and help your patients with insurance coverage and questions.

Our compounding lab team can usually fill each prescription within 3-5 hours (during normal operating hours).

Shipping Options:

  • Standard U.S. Mail: 3-5 business days and FREE for 3 or more compounded medications (flat fee for 1-2 medications). Shipping is free from our Fullerton store for CA patients.
  • Golden State Overnight (GSO) available in CA, NV, and AZ
  • Federal Express – ground, overnight, 2nd day, 3rd day.

Over 99% of our prescriptions ship within 24 hours
