As of 2015, OmniPlus compounds specialized medications for conditions including neuropathic and chronic pain, such as peripheral neuropathy; radicular and back pain, such as fibromyalgia; and general inflammation and pain, such as sacroiliac joint pain and osteoarthritis, explains the pharmacy. Compounding is the centuries-old method that pharmacists use to prepare tonics, medications, supplements and creams individually for their patients.

OmniPlus combines art and science to make specialty compounds, such as radiation and post-operation scar creams, and fungal nail infection, acne and psoriasis creams, notes the pharmacy. To produce its scar creams, the pharmacy starts with high-quality silicon-based creams and then adds active doctor-prescribed, FDA-approved ingredients to create the specific cream each patient needs. Customers and physicians can call or send faxes to the pharmacy's toll-free numbers to order prescriptions, over-the-counter medications and retail drug store products.
