OBJECTIVE To determine the stability of amlodipine besylate in two liquid dosage forms under refrigeration and at room temperature. DESIGN Commercially available amlodipine tablets (Norvasc-Pfizer) were used to prepare two suspensions: one in extemporaneously prepared 1% methylcellulose in syrup (1:1), and another in equal volumes of commercially(More)
The stability of enalapril 1 mg/mL (as the maleate) in deionized water, citrate buffer solution, and a sweetened suspending agent at two temperatures was studied. Twenty enalapril 10-mg tablets were crushed to a powder. Deionized water, citrate buffer solution, or sweetened vehicle was added to produce three 200-mL batches of each liquid; the expected final(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the stability of spironolactone in an extemporaneously prepared suspension at 22 and 4 degrees C over a three-month storage period. DESIGN Spironolactone suspension (1 mg/mL) was prepared in syrup NF, carboxymethylcellulose, and purified water USP. The suspension was stored in ten amber glass prescription bottles; five were stored(More)
The stability of lamotrigine 1 mg/mL in two extemporaneously prepared oral suspensions at 4 and 25 degrees C was studied. Lamotrigine tablets were ground to powder, and the powder was combined with a 1:1 mixture of Ora-Sweet and Ora-Plus or a 1:1 mixture of Ora-Sweet SF and Ora-Plus (Paddock Laboratories) to produce two 1-mg/mL suspensions. One 100-mg(More)
The stability of pyrimethamine in a liquid dosage formulation stored for up to three months was studies. Commercially available 25-mg pyrimethamine tablets were crushed with a mortar and pestle and mixed with a 1:1 mixture of Simple Syrup, NF, and 1% methylcellulose to yield a suspension with a pyrimethamine concentration of 2 mg/mL. The suspension was(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of four preparation methods and extended storage on rifampin concentration in extemporaneously prepared suspensions. DESIGN Four preparation methods were used: mixing intravenous (i.v.) rifampin in syrup (A); manufacturer's recommended technique of mixing capsule (Rifadin) contents in syrup (B); triturating capsule(More)
