Sterile Compounding: Injectables

Sterile Compounding Home |  Injectables | Ophthalmics
We prepare sterile compounding products including injections, ophthalmics and medications complying with OCP, NAPRA, and  USP specifications such as USP Chapter 797 and Chapter 800. 

Injectables

Examples of sterile injections that can be compounded by prescription order include:

  • Intracavernosal injections of papaverine and phentolamine, sometimes with prostaglandin E1 (“œtri-mix”) in customized doses
  • Injectable vitamins, minerals and nutraceuticals
  • Preservative-free injections
  • Intrathecal injections

Ask us about combinations to meet specific needs or medications that are currently unavailable or have been discontinued for non-safety reasons (such as when a newer therapy reduces the need and therefore decreased use results in the medication no longer being profitable to manufacturer).

Intracavernosal injection of drugs such as papaverine, phentolamine, and prostaglandin E1 is an effective treatment for patients with erectile dysfunction (ED).

More patients with ED and using ICI preferred it as their main treatment than was expected, even though they had a good response to oral sildenafil. A better quality of erection with ICI was the reason why experienced patients chose this method, differing from the choice of patients starting treatment for ED.
