10 Ways to Administer Medications

Dosage forms

In addition to compounding unique medications for each individuals’ specific needs, Horst Pharmacy can put those compound medications into a wide variety of dosage forms.  Some common dosage form examples include:

  1. Troches, which are “lozenges” that dissolve in the mouth.
  2. Emollient cream, which help keep the skin dry by reducing water loss from the epidermis (the outer layer of skin), can be helpful for dermatological conditions.
  3. Oral Syringes, which can improve dosing accuracy.
  4. Capsules, which allow for extended-release formulations.
  5. Gummy gels, which are chewable forms that are great for kids.
  6. Lollipops, which are a convenient dosage form for extended delivery and local effect.
  7. Popsicles, which are a great alternative, especially during summer months.
  8. Lip Balm Applicators, which are terrific for “spot” applications
  9. Dauber Bottle, which is ideal for liquid preparations.
