Belmar compounds several kinds of tablets based on the type of medication to be delivered, preferred speed of absorption, or other patient needs.

Oral Tablets

Compressed tablets are one of the simplest and easiest ways for patients to take their medications. We compound them with one or multiple medication ingredients, in a variety of combinations. In addition to the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), tablets may be compounded with binders to keep the tablet together, lubricants to make them easier to swallow, and flavorants to make them more palatable to patients. Tablet-delivered medications enter the bloodstream from the stomach or bowel.

Oral tablet advantages:

  • Compounded in a large variety of dosages
  • Appropriate for patients of all ages
  • Easy for most patients to take without help
  • Can be scored for easy dose titration

  • Can be compounded to disguise unpleasant-tasting medications

Belmar sublingual tablets have several advantages over troches. Troches use polyethylene glycol as their base, which may cause irritation to patients’ gums. More and more patients are trying to avoid polyethylene glycol due to sensitivities Also, unlike troches, sublingual tablets do not melt if they get hot and there are no special shipping requirements.
