Abstract:  This article begins with a discussion of the complexities involved with trying to determine the stability of parenteral admixtures, which may involve a staggering number of combinations of parenteral products. It goes on to discuss therapeutic, physical and chemical incompatibilities; factors involved in incompatibilities (pH, solubility, concentration, complexation and light); stability; tips for minimizing the incidence of incompatibilities and alternate administration techniques. A table provides information regarding general guidelines concerning pH.
