Ad 10: Soluble Elastic Filled Capsules.


Few preparations illustrate more strikingly than these, the value of the service which pharmacy is rendering the practitioner of medicine. While we manufacture these SOLUBLE ELASTIC FILLED CAPSULES of all sizes, ranging from ten minims to half an ounce, it is more particularly to the larger sizes that we would now ask attention. The smaller sizes have been before the profession for a considerable time, and are, therefore, familiar. Comparatively few practitioners, we believe, realize the great advantages which would accrue, both in the increased satisfaction to the subscriber, and the comfort and well-being of the patient, through the general employment of these capsules in the administration of the more bulky and nauseous oily drugs, e.g., Castor Oil and Cod Liver Oil.
2 1-2 Grammes. 5 Grammes. 10 Grammes. 15 Grammes.
These filled capsules being soft and elastic, and readily lubricated with the saliva, are swallowed with the greatest ease, even when of the largest size - containing half and ounce. A tablespoonful of castor oil or cod liver oil may thus be given with the utmost facility when any other method of giving it would provoke nausea and vomiting.
We claim for the ingredients with which our capsules are filled absolute conformity to the highest standard of excellence.
