Specialized Dosage Forms

Medications can be compounded into dosage forms that are most appropriate to treat each patient.  Desired active ingredient(s) can be compounded into creams, ointments and gels for topical or transdermal administration.  In order for medications to be absorbed transdermally, it is critical that an appropriate base and proper compounding technique be used.  Medication can be easily measured using an oral topical dispenser.

We're often requested to make medicated lollipops prescribed for sore throat pain, tonsillectomies and lots of other applications.  Specialized gels for nausea as an alternative to suppositories for children and adults are also a frequent item requested from our compounding practice.

Convenient applicators can be used to deliver medication directly to an affected site, such as the lips.  Compared to oral administration, less active ingredients may be required when a medication is applied topically and the risk of systemic side effects can be minimized.  Common dosage forms for human and veterinary compounding include:

  • Medicated lozenges
  • Medicated lollipops
  • Topical & oral sprays
  • Otic insufflations
  • Creams, lotions and gels
  • Modified release capsules
  • Sugar-free, dye-free preparations
  • Preservative-free formulas
  • Geriatric dosages
  • Hospice formulations
  • Pediatric dosages
  • Nasal sprays
  • Lip balms
  • Oral troches
  • Suppositories
  • And many more
