From Deborah A. Martinson, CPhT, of Keystone Pharmacy in Grand Rapids, Michigan
We had a new mom call on the telephone, frantic that she could not find a place to make Lansoprazole 3 mg/mL Oral Suspension (Flavorless) (BUD Study) (PCCA Formula #9673). She said she had been to other big box stores and they did not have all the ingredients to make this compound. She was almost in tears on the phone, wondering what she was going to do if she could not get this medication for her newborn who had gastric reflux.
At the time, I also was a new mom and knew how crazy you can feel, so we made this compound up right away for her. She walked in to get the medication and immediately began crying. She was so thankful that we were able to make this – and provide it to her child in a timely manner to relieve his suffering! (Source: PCCA Apothagram, February 2013)
