With the Bactroban drug shortage confirmed until at least October 2016, compounding provides an alternative to continue offering your patients mupirocin 2% ointment and cream.
Fagron carries all ingredients to compound these preparations, including mupirocin USP powder, ointment and cream bases and packaging material. Our Occluvan™ anhydrous ointment base is an ideal vehicle to prepare the mupirocin ointment, as it's easily spreadable and has a skin-friendly formulation.
Fagron can assist you with formula queries and we have developed practical formulation sheets to prepare mupirocin ointment and cream. Please call 1300 789 565 for assistance.
