Nic stix

Jan 13, 2014

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 NameNic stix (5mg/g topical)
What is in ItNicotine
IndicationSmoking cessation
How to PrescribeLooks 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.

Thanks,

The Pharmacists of the Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy
