Compounding Formulas from the Recent Journal Literature

Compounding formulas are cited from recent (1997+) issues of four pharmacy journals. One of them, International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding (IJPC), is the first journal devoted to this important area of pharmacy practice; publication began in 1997. The other three are American Druggist, Pharmacy Times and U.S. Pharmacist which all have regular columns dedicated to compounding. Unfortunately American Druggist ceased publication at the end of 1999. Compounding formulas from other pharmacy journals also will be added as time allows.

To organize the citations, we ordered them alphabetically by what we decided was the main (or first mentioned) ingredient and in some cases by the indication or dosage form. These decisions were subjective. In some cases, where the subject was not obvious to us from the title, we added a word for indexing purposes, in square brackets. Please use the alphabet bar to find your topic. Veterinary compounding formulas have their own section at the end of the alphabetical listing. We hope to add to this on a quarterly basis. Please be sure to let us know if you have any suggestions for making this listing more useful.

In addition, compounding questions and answers e-mailed to pharmacist, Martin Erikson, are archived on the Pharmacy Times website. Another online source of compounding procedures and techniques is the quarterly newsletter Secundum Artem available fulltext on the Paddock Laboratories website.

Developed by Elizabeth Foy, Angela Sinclair and Kilby Rogers with the technical assistance of Tracy Jollymore and Pat Farmer. Other Dalhousie pharmacy students who have worked on this project include: Chole Campbell, LeAnne MacLean, Rachel LeBlanc and Tim Rees.

I am currently a pharmacy student/intern at St. John's University. I do all of the compounding at work; it is a topic that I am very interested in. We came across an old prescription about 2 weeks ago that I would like your opinion on. The doctor, a dermatologist, prescribed: 40% urea in aquaphor 4 oz. What is the best way to compound that while still having it be "pharmaceutically elegant"? Anyone can make it gritty, but how about a nice smooth preparation? Pharm Times 1997 Feb;63(2):86.
