Abstract:  Compounded liquid medication is frequently required in children to allow easy dose adjustment and overcome swallowing difficulties. The objective of this study was to evaluate the stability of oral suspensions compounded with SyrSpend SF PH4 and the commonly used active pharmaceutical ingredients baclofen 2.0 mg/mL, carvedilol 5.0 mg/mL, hydrochlorothiazide 2.0 mg/mL, mercaptopurine 10.0 mg/mL, methadone hydrochloride 10.0 mg/mL, oseltamivir phosphate 6.0 mg/mL, phenobarbital 9.0 mg/mL and 15.0 mg/mL, propranolol hydrochloride 0.5 mg/mL and 5.0 mg/mL, pyrazinamide 100.0 mg/mL, spironolactone 2.0 mg/mL and 2.5 mg/mL, sotalol hydrochloride 5.0 mg/mL, tacrolimus monohydrate 0.5 mg/mL, ursodeoxycholic acid 20.0 mg/mL, and vancomycin hydrochloride 25.0 mg/mL. Suspensions were compounded with raw powders, except for mercaptopurine, pyrazinamide, and sotalol hydrochloride, which were made from commercial tablets. Stability was assessed by measuring the percentage recovery at 0 (baseline), 60 days, and 90 days after compounding for suspensions made with raw powders, which were stored at 2ÅãC to 8ÅãC. The stability of tablets, which were stored at 2ÅãC to 8ÅãC and 20ÅãC to 25ÅãC, was assessed by measuring the percentage recovery at 0 (baseline), 7 days, 14 days, 30 days, 60 days, and 90 days. Active pharmaceutical ingredients quantification was performed by ultraviolet high-performance liquid chromatography via a stability-indicating method. Given the percentage of recovery of the active pharmaceutical ingredients within the suspensions, the beyond-use date of the final products (active pharmaceutical ingredients + vehicle) was at least 90 days for all suspensions in the conditions tested. This suggests that SyrSpend SF PH4 is suitable for compounding active pharmaceutical ingredients from different pharmacological classes.
