Ear, Nose, and Throat
There are many causes of sinusitis, including nasal polyps that block the nasal passages, allergic reactions, and viral, bacterial and fungal infections. At Chemistry Rx, we compound medications that are delivered directly to the sinuses via an innovative administration method called nasal nebulization. Patients that suffer from sinusitis will receive capsules filled with a fine powder. The contents of the capsule are dissolved in saline. Using a nebulizer that can be obtained together with the capsules, the saline with the drug is then dispersed into fine droplets that are able to reach the sinuses through inhalation. The capsules can also be used in irrigation rinses of the nasal passages.
Ear infections can be very painful and are often due to infections with bacteria or fungi. We compound innovative ear drops with various different antibiotics and antifungals at any desired concentration. We also prepare capsules for insufflation which allow for the administration of antibiotics and other drugs in powder form. Insufflation of powders eliminates the administration of additional moisture to the ear, providing an efficient strategy to treat ear infections with drainage.
