CutisPharma expands mouthwash compounding kit line
December 22nd, 2011
WOBURN, Mass. – CutisPharma Inc. has extended its FIRST Magic Mouthwash line with four- and six-ounce BLM compounding kits.
The company said Wednesday that the active ingredients in the new BLM kits are comparable to those found in the most routinely prepared formulation of Magic Mouthwash containing Benadryl, lidocaine and Maalox.
The kits are made for one patient and include preweighed powders and a premeasured suspension. With FIRST mouthwash kits the pharmacist needs only to add the powders to the liquid suspension, shake and then dispense to the patient.
"Pharmacies have told CutisPharma, and our research has indicated, that there are just as many four-ounce and six-ounce prescriptions for magic mouthwash containing Benadryl, lidocaine and Maalox as there are for eight-ounce prescriptions," stated CutisPharma chief executive officer Dr. Indu Muni.
By launching FIRST Mouthwash BLM in four- and six-ounce sizes, pharmacists have more flexibility in filling FIRST Magic Mouthwash prescriptions, Muni noted. "The company now has a wide range of FIRST Magic Mouthwash formulations to choose from, particularly for the most commonly prescribed and used."
CutisPharma added that it now has 14 proprietary prescription compounding kits on the market: five progesterone suppository compounding kits, two testosterone kits, one hydrocortisone kit, and six Magic Mouthwash kits. Several more compounding kits are in the planning stages, the company said.
