Abstract: Provided are reservoir electrodes for iontotherapeutic devices which have two chambers; the first chamber is electrically connected to the iontotherapeutic device and is designed to contain electrolytic solution and the second chamber has ionized pharmaceutical dissolved in electrolytic solution. The two chambers are separated by a permselective membrane. The first chamber has means to inhibit increase in ionic content caused by the operation of the iontotherapeutic device. Also provided are unit dose forms adapted for insertion into the reservoir electrodes. The dose unit forms are made of crosslinked polymer and contain ionizable pharmaceutical which is released for absorption during operation of the iontotherapeutic process. Also provided are novel iontotherapeutic devices and processes.
