For those of you who have gotten the 1 g sucralfate tablets and ground them up to syringe, and have also gotten it compounded, is the compounded amounts less than that of the tablets? I do not mean dosage, I mean the amount of powder that is in one dose?
The reason I am asking is because I recently had to get misoprostol compounded from Rood and Riddle pharmacy. The quantity was much smaller per dose, and this is a good thing I think. I would like to potentially keep my horse on sucralfate longer (working with my vet of course), and I am thinking if the quantity is less then it can be tossed in his food and he will be less likely to hate it.
My boy is finishing up four weeks of “all the meds“ and so I’m going to taper everything slowly, and in three weeks DH and I are going out of town for 10 days, and I want to keep things simple while also giving him some gastric support while I’m gone. So I’m thinking if the compounded powder is a really small amount versus the ground up tablets, and I know Rood and Riddle can add alfalfa flavoring, that it could be tossed in his grain and he’ll eat it. He will not eat the tablets
