Preservative Free Steroid Injectables
Many patients cannot tolerate the preservatives, dyes, and allergens that are unfortunately present in many commercially available medications. Patients who are sensitive to these irritating agents can experience adverse side effects or reactions.
Compounded medication can be prepared by MasterPharm to suit the prescribed needs of each individual patient. Such medications, when appropriately prescribed, may be formulated without the use of potentially irritating substances or ingredients to which the physician has determined an individual may be particularly sensitive, including the following examples:
- Additives and fillers
- Artificial colorings
- Artificial flavorings
- Milk derivates
Sterile, preservative-free preparation may be used for many medications, including steroid injectables that are commonly used by surgeons, hospital staff, and physicians to treat pain and inflammation in patients. Preservative-free steroid injections can be compounded using a variety of steroids including the following:
- Triamcinolone Diacete
- Methylprednisolone acetate
- Depo Medrol
Matching the dosage forms, formulation, and strength of customized compounds to patient needs is advantageous when the physician is treating pain and inflammation. More importantly, our compounding services enable us to produce medications that are specifically tailored to the needs of the physician who may instruct a particular formulation which is intended to soothe inflammation without introducing the risk of adverse side effects and reactions to substances in the medication.
For surgical centers, hospitals, and physicians seeking to order preservative free steroid injectables, MasterPharm prepares these customized compounds according to USP/NF 795 and 797 standards, among other strict quality control guidelines, to ensure the their efficacy and sterility. Our state of the art facilities meet and exceed USP/NF Environmental standards, including ISO Class 5 Open Enviornment Clean Rooms and ISO Class 7 work areas.
Compounded Solutions and Suspensions
MasterPharm supports physicians in their life-saving work by customizing pharmaceuticals to the specific instructions of physicians who are engaged in the effort to optimize patient care and promote fast recovery. Since drug companies must focus on manufacturing only those drug forms, strengths, and formulations that are designed for the broader population s, the result is a one-size-fits-all approach that is not always right for the individual patient.
We address this by expanding the options beyond the limited scope of commercially available drug products. If a patient cannot swallow oral medications, or if the patient is vomiting, we can prepare medications in alternative dosage forms that in the opinion of the physician make them easier to administer including the following:
- Intravenous injections
- Intramuscular injections
- Subcutaneous injections
- Transdermal patches
- Eye drop preparations
For infants and young children, we can customize medications prescribed by the physician according to their body weight, age, and health needs. For children, the elderly, and other special needs patients, we can prepare medications in alternative forms and formulations if they require medications are more pleasant to take and tolerate including the following:
Dosage Forms such as:
- Gummy gels
- Flavored liquids
- Jell-O or puddings
- Lozenges or Troches
Flavorings such as:
- Bubble gum
- Cotton Candy
- Tropical punch
- Milk, soy, or wheat
Physicians may request such compounded medications to ensure patient compliance and other related reasons which in the physician’s opinion are important for treatment and the patient’s health and wellness.At MasterPharm, we employ stringent quality control measures that guarantee proper compounds, dosages, and the sterility of each preparation.
