TNT Pharmacy Compounders can Help!                    Per a prescription order, a formulation can be compounded to contain the proper combination of active ingredients, in the most appropriate base, to treat a specific type of wound.  We customize medications to meet each individual’s specific needs. For example, the choice of cream, ointment, or gel can be clinically significant. Each time a wound needs to be cleaned, there is the potential for disruption of new tissue growth.  Gels, which are more water soluble than creams or ointments, may be preferable for wound use because a gel can be rinsed from the wound by irrigation.  Ointments may contain polyethylene glycol (PEG), which can be absorbed from open wounds and damaged skin. If the wound is quite large and too much PEG is absorbed, it can lead to renal toxicity. Another useful dosage form is the “polyox bandage” - which can be puffed onto a wound and will adhere even if exudate is present.  A polyox bandage can be compounded to contain the active ingredient(s) of your choice.   Example of active ingredients used in wound care products: Aloe Vera Antibiotics Benzoyl Peroxide Cholestyramine Ketoprofen Lidocaine Misoprostol Nifedipine Pentoxifylline Phenytoin Sucralfate Urea Verapamil                  All rights and materials reserved 2015 TNT Pharmacy
