Compounded Topical Medications

Topical medications are applied onto the skin or mucous membrane. This offers another delivery method of drug absorption. A benefit of using a topical medication is that it can provide treatment locally.

Topical forms include:

  • Creams
  • Lotions
  • Gels
  • PLO gels
  • Ointments
  • Solutions

Topical administration of medication can:

  • Bypass liver metabolism (first-pass metabolism).
  • Combine two or more active ingredients together to enhance patient compliance.
  • Ease delivery for those who have trouble swallowing pills.
  • Bypass gastrointestinal degradation from stomach acid.
  • Bypass gastrointestinal sensitivity.
