With the increasing use of compounded prescriptions, practitioners need to answer the question, “What is the stability of this preparation after it is compounded?” Trissel’s™ Stability of Compounded Formulations is the only book in print that compiles all currently available stability information on drugs in compounded oral, enteral, topical, ophthalmic, and other specialized preparations.
Based on data published over the past 60 years, the reference summarizes specific formulations and stability studies. It helps readers (a) determine whether formulated compounds will be stable for the anticipated duration of use, (b) properly store and repackage compounded formulations and some commercial products, (c) formulate in accordance with documented standards, and (d) counsel patients on the use and storage of compounded medications.
