    What drug? Sterile water is most common.

    That would be unwise without knowing if it is an approved dilutant for the specific drug.

    Caverject must be mixed with a solution called Bacteriostatic Water for Injection USP (sterile water for injection). Edex must be mixed with a solution called Sodium Chloride Injection USP (sterile normal saline, 0.9%, for injection).

    I would not recommend using other solutions, or sterile water or saline that is not prepared for injection.

    I'm sorry for the unwise advice but I assume that fuentejps asks for a recon solution containing a preservative agent, alternative to the bacteriostatic water (with benzyl alchol).
