Gentamicin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic, frequently prescribed to treat many types of bacterial infections.
During backorders or other shortages of commercially available medications, compounding pharmacies like Wedgewood Pharmacy are able to compound alternatives so that treatment regimens can continue uninterrupted.
Al Salciunas, Wedgewood Pharmacy’s human health product manager said, “A manufacturer backorder or commercial unavailability of a medication does not lessen a practitioner’s need for that medication as a treatment option. As a compounding pharmacy, we are able to provide Gentamicin so physicians can ensure the treatments they need are available for their patients.”
