Understanding Patient-Specific 503A Compounding
Belmar Pharma Solutions’ 503A compounding pharmacy has been filling patient-specific prescriptions since 1985. We deliver health and wellness medication options that are customized for your patient.
What Is Patient-Specific Compounding?
With compounding, we have the flexibility to address specific patient needs. For example, we can compound a drug formulation to eliminate allergens, tailor dosages, enhance absorbability, combine drugs for convenience, or improve flavor and texture.
Standard pharmacies don’t fill prescriptions for compounded medications; that’s the work of compounding pharmacies. Belmar has two kinds of facilities — a 503A Compounding Pharmacy and a 503B FDA-registered Outsourcing Facility. Our 503B outsourcing facility, Belmar Select Outsourcing, produces batches of non-patient-specific compounded products that we distribute to clinical offices and other pharmacies. Belmar Pharmacy, our 503A facility, is our traditional compounding pharmacy where we make individualized formulations, following a compounded prescription that you write for a specific patient.
What Conditions Can Be Addressed With Belmar Medication Solutions?
Belmar produces medications that may help with hormone replacement, thyroid and autoimmune diseases and disorders, sexual wellness, aesthetic dermatology, brain/sleep/mind support, and other interventions designed to promote your patient’s health. Many of our compounded medications are designed to increase your patients’ sense of wellness and their ability to enjoy their lives fully.

Belmar’s Focus on Quality
We promote a culture of quality and compliance. Every member of our team cares about the safety of our medications and the health of your patients. We believe we have the highest level of quality standards of any compounding pharmacy in the U.S.
We comply strictly with all the regulatory standards for our industry, established by:
- State boards of pharmacy, which regulate all 503A pharmacies
- FDA, which has oversight for the safety of all active pharmaceutical ingredients
- DEA, that oversees the controlled substances sometimes used in compounded preparations
- USP Convention, that issues practice standards ensuring quality and safety of medications and food
- USP General Chapter <795> provides guidelines for the prevention of contamination and potency variance, preparation process, beyond-use dates, and stability for non-sterile compounding
We at Belmar Pharmacy uphold our own policies that exceed even these industry standards. Our ingredients and compounds are continuously tested and retested, at random by an independent lab, all the way from the sourcing phase through distribution.
We own FDA-registered Green Mountain Pharmaceuticals, a company that sources and manufactures many of the bulk ingredients that supply our pharmacy. Whether our active ingredients come from our own sister company or external suppliers, we require the same rigorous safety measures.
