Gabapentin 1200 mg Suppository

Jun 5, 2013

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 NameGabapentin 1200 mg Suppository
What is in ItGabapentin
IndicationDr. Marais had a patient in hospital who normally took Gabapentin 600 mg caps 2 caps tid orally in community. Patient wasn't able to take medication orally in hospital. We compounded the gabapentin suppository and pain control was achieved.
How to PrescribeInsert 1 suppository three time daily

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
