Why are most suppositories big and bulky?
Dotts suppositories are small, pea-sized suppositories, with each unit comprising of a 0.25mL volume. Dotts are made using Pebble Beach Molds from TICKERWORKS. The molds are reusable, non-stick, and heat-resistant up to 302 °F.
Gentle Dose and Dotts
Multiple Dotts, Various Strengths,Yet a Single Application.
Gentle Dose® applicators can be used by patients to insert one or more Dotts suppositories into the intended area, and with a single application. Each Gentle Dose® applicator can hold up to ten Dotts suppositories at once.
With a high surface area-to-volume ratio, Dotts' suppositories melt inside a patient's body much faster than traditional suppositories. Their smaller size also accounts for most of the accelerated melting.
Compounding laboratories around the globe depend on Pebble Beach Molds to meet and exceed their vigorous compounding volume. This novel molding system facilitates quick turnaround times to better address patients' demands.

Suppository Dotts are small suppositories with a quarter milliliter volume, and with capabilities of handling up to 75mg of most common medications (APIs)

It can fit up to Ten Dotts. Therefore, the patient can insert up to 10 Dotts at once if necessary to administer a specific dosage in a single application.
