Liquid mupirocin for chronic sinusitis.
ASL Pharmacy[R], a compounding pharmacy that specializes in formulating medications for the sinuses, announces the availability of compounded mupirocin liquid for topical sinus use in patients with chronic sinusitis. Until now, mupirocin has typically been available only in ointment form. ASL's compounded mupirocin liquid does not contain the other ingredients found in the ointment; it only contains pure mupirocin, sterile water, and sterile saline.
For nasal irrigation, ASL's premixed unit-dose vials may be used with a NeilMed[R] bottle or any other irrigation device, eliminating patients' need to dissolve ointment in water. The liquid mupirocin mixes instantly with no shaking or mess, and it is compatible with other medications mixed in saline immediately before nasal irrigation. Physicians may order specific medication combinations as clinically indicated. Such combinations are easy for patients to mix in their irrigation devices and administer. Because this sterile compound is prepared in premixed unit-dose vials, it may be used either for sinus irrigation or sinus nebulization.
