New testing on Town & Country atropine 0.01% allows extended expiration dating, lower costs and added convenience for patients’ parents.

Town & Country Compounding Pharmacy can now dispense a 10 mL droptainer bottle that no longer requires refrigeration/freezing or overnight shipping on ice and gives a 90-day supply

With recent testing advancements and new stability data available, Town & Country Compounding can now offer an updated version of the compounded Atropine 0.01% eye drops.

*Previously, the guidelines set by FDA and USP <797> Pharmaceutical Compounding – Sterile Preparations limited Atropine 0.01% eye drop expiration dates to only 14 days refrigerated and 45 days frozen. Therefore, we were limited to dispensing a 28-day supply regardless of volume.


Benefits of the extended expiration date on the 0.01% formula

  • Cost savings for almost double the days’ supply in one bottle = convenience
  • Option for multiple bottles to be dispensed at once
  • Cost Savings
    • $95 for 10 mL, Rx refills filled less frequently (90-day supply vs. previously a 28-day supply)
    • Overnight shipping on ice is no longer required
  • Convenience
  • Single 10 mL droptainer bottle good for an extended time period at room temperature (now 90 days vs previous 28 days in 2 bottles)
  • Storing at room temperature adds flexibility to everyday life situations, such as travel
    (vs. previously stored as the 2.5 ml bottle refrigerated while using for 14 days, while the other  2.5 ml bottle was required to be frozen)
