I'm injection compatability

Posted

Hi all. I work in a nurse led clinic with no immediate pharmacutical support. I often get prescriptions for the administration of I'm injections. Do you know any reliable sources that I can refer to to ensure compatability of drugs via the same syringe? Of cause if I'm in doubt I always give seperate injections into seperate sites but if I can be 100% sure of compatability, I would prefer to mix and only cause discomfort once to my patients. If you can advise me that would be great :) stay safe !

Who fills the prescriptions? There should be a pharmacist available by phone that you can call. What kind of medications are you giving I'm routinely in an outpatient setting?
