Ondansetron 8 mg suppositories

May 3, 2012

Dear Doctors,

At the Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy, we want to help you help your patients. One way we can help you is through compounding. Compounding is when a pharmacist modifies or mixes a medication for a specific patient with a prescription from that patients prescriber. Common reasons to compound a medication are to get a non-commercially available dose, to get a medication into a patient by a different route or to re-create a medication that is temporarily or permanently off the market. Here is our suggestion this month:

Compound Name:Ondansetron 8 mg suppositories
What is in It:ondansetron 8mg (zofran)
Indication:Usually nausea due to chemo. We are currently making these for the hospital pharmacy during the shortage of injectable ondansetron
How to Prescribe:As you would the injectable ondansetron. Usually 8 mg used 30 minutes prior to chemo.


We hope that gives you some ideas about how we can help you help your patients! Any questions? Call us at 638-4602.

Thanks,
The Pharmacists of the Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy
