Does anyone have a list of medications which can cause precipitant occlusions?
Everything, anything, all of them! Precipitate is formed when a change occurs in the pH. So when a high pH drug comes into contact with a low pH, precipitate occurs. Lynn

There is information on this in the INS "Infusion Nursing An Evidenced Based Approach" book on pages 508-509. Hope that helps.
