Q: I have an order for nifedipine 0.2% cream for anal fissures. Can you supply a formulation for this cream?
A: For topical local use, a poloxamer gel will provide a formulation that will remain in place at body temperature, because the gel exhibits inverse temperature/viscosity behavior. The material, after compounding, has the appearance of a vanishing cream.
No claims are made as to the uses, safety, efficacy, or bioavailability of this product. The formulas are for informational purposes only. .
