Drug maker launches compounded formulations for IC, ED
San Diego—Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has launched new compounded formulations for two urologic conditions—interstitial cystitis (IC) and erectile dysfunction (ED). Hep-Lido-A (alkalinized lidocaine and heparin) is a patented compounded formulation that is instilled directly into the bladder as an immediate treatment option for patients with IC. Hep-Lido-A’s new user-friendly kit includes a hydrophilic catheter and ready-to-use sterile pre-filled syringes (shown) compounded by an Imprimis pharmacy, providing convenience for in-office instillation and for patients who perform at-home instillations. Imprimis’ Tri-Mix (phentolamine, papaverine, and prostaglandin) lyophilized formulations are provided in a powder-like form in single-dose vials that can be transported and stored prior to reconstitution and self-administration for the treatment of ED. Tri-Mix formulations also allow for room-temperature storage. (Image via Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, Inc.)
