We do not refill medications automatically. Many of our medications are prescribed "as needed," and we do not want to bill a patient for medication they may no longer need. Also, if the prescription is automatically refilled and requires shipment, we cannot ensure that the recipient will be present to accept the package once delivered.

We can. If you are a new patient and are interested, we will ask for your email address upon obtaining your demographic information. If you are a current patient and are interested, please call and provide us with your email address so that you may receive tracking information the next time you refill your prescription(s).

A member from our Inbound team will reach out to you for each web form inquiry submitted. To ensure the quickest response time, please only submit one web form per inquiry.

The time to fill/compound each prescription varies. Most orders are shipped within 7 business days if the prescription is received by 7:00 PM CST.

PLEASE NOTE: Upon receiving a prescription from your physician, we will first get your approval before filling the prescription unless otherwise specified.

We hold all medications for two weeks for pick up. During this time, we will have an automated system call you three times to inform you that your prescription is ready for pick up.

When filling out our refill request form, if you would like your prescription shipped to you, please provide shipping details, and select your preferred shipping method.

If you would like to pick up your prescription directly from our facility, please select "Patient Pickup" as your shipping method.

We accept cash, FSA cards, and most major credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.

We source all our medications and active pharmaceutical ingredients from FDA-registered suppliers and manufacturers.

Since many prescribers realize that compounded product testing and quality control vary from pharmacy to pharmacy, many have come to trust Empower based on our reputation of delivering consistent, high-quality compounded medication. We test and produce all our products according to all applicable FDA and USP standards, often above and beyond them. Learn about our quality systems.

Your healthcare provider likely prescribed you a medication that is not available in a traditional retail pharmacy and requires a compounding pharmacy, like ours, to make the medication specifically for you based on your healthcare provider's specifications.

Upon receiving a prescription from your doctor, we do not automatically fill it until we get approval from you to do so.

Because compounded medications are exempt by law from having National Drug Code ID numbers that manufactured products carry, many insurance companies will not directly reimburse the claimant or compounding pharmacy, so Empower does not accept insurance.
