WILMINGTON, Mass., March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CutisPharma, Inc. announced today the commercial availability of FIRST-Atenolol grape-flavored oral solution compounding kit. FIRST-Atenolol

provides pharmacists with a convenient, high-quality, standardized way to compound an oral liquid Atenolol solution for patients who are not otherwise served by commercially available therapies, such as those who are unable to swallow solid oral dosing
formulations.

"We are pleased to announce that, effective today, FIRST-Atenolol is available to all pharmacies in the United States," said Mike Radice, CutisPharma's Chief Commercial Officer. "The addition of FIRST-Atenolol to our overall portfolio of FIRST Unit-of-Use Compounding Kits has been widely anticipated by our customers.  This represents the second new addition to the family of FIRST Kits launched this year, after FIRST-Metoprolol, providing pharmacists with an expanded range of high-quality alternatives to traditionally compounded oral liquid suspensions and solutions." 

FIRST-Atenolol is now available in 2 mg/mL 300mL and 10 mg/mL 150 mL strengths to allow additional flexibility for a variety of patient needs.
