Abstract:  Extemporaneous topical compounds for neuropathic pain offers an alternative or adjunct approach to existing therapies for patients. Assigning evidence-based beyond-use dating prior to dispensing topical medications is a legal requirement by pharmacy governing bodies. The purpose of this study was to utilize a validated stability-indicating high-performance liquid chromatography assay to determine beyond-use dating of topical amitriptyline in three different bases (Lipoderm Base, PLO Gel Mediflo 30, Emollient Cream) at three different temperatures [room temperature (25°C), refrigeration (4°C), and high temperature (40°C)]. Amitriptyline was stable after 90 days at room temperature in both Lipoderm Base and PLO Gel Mediflo 30. However, it was not stable at 40°C in Emollient Cream, irrespective of storage conditions.
