Alternative to commercially available dexamethasone elixir
March 24, 2015
In follow up to an article published in the Feb. 10, 2015 issue of The Link regarding dose volumes for pediatric patients, one of our registrants made us aware of an alternative to commercially available dexamethasone elixir. The recipe has good stability, is well-researched, and does not contain alcohol.
The recipe is described in detail in an article on the Canadian Journal of Hospital Pharmacy’s website. (CJHP54.2 (2001): 96-101.)
