Abstract:  In the formulation of parenteral dosage forms, pH is a critical factor and can be a complicated factor in compounding intravenous admixtures since the additives and the vehicle may have different pH values. This is especially important, as a significant number of parenteral medications require compounding involving dissolution of lyophilized powders; dilution of drug doses for infusion; mixing of dextrose, amino acids, vitamins, and electrolytes for parenteral nutrition; etc. Compounding intravenous admixtures is common practice, but each admixture may present a different set of problems to consider, especially as it relates to pH.
