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||Nic stix (5mg/g topical)|
|What is in It||Nicotine|
|How to Prescribe||Looks like a chap stick tube. Stress this is not for the lips. Will rub 1-3 swipes on inside of wrist when they get a craving.|
We hope that gives you some ideas about how we can help you help your patients! Any questions? Call us at 204-638-4602.
