Sucrose Octaacetate 10% Topical Cream

Apr 3, 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 Name:Sucrose Octaacetate 10% Topical Cream
What is in It:Sucrose Octaacetat is a very bad tasting sugar.
Indication:Stop Nail chewing.
How to Prescribe:Apply to nails BID to TID and the bad taste should act as negative reinforcement to disuade nail chewing

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