Personalize Your Child’s Healthcare
It’s no secret that most kids don’t like taking medicine. There’s nothing fun about being sick, and taking medicine just seems to make it worse. But it doesn’t have to be that way. While there’s no guarantee that taking medicine ever will become an entirely pleasurable event, there are some ways to help. From flavoring medications to make them taste better, to providing individualized strengths and dosage forms, a compounding pharmacist can help make medication time easier and less stressful for your child – and you!
Working Closely With Your Child’s Pediatrician, We Can Create Medications To Treat:
• Pain Relief
• Respiratory Disorders
• Oral Thrush
• Head Lice
• Diaper Rash
• Skin Disorders
• Cold Sores/Fever Blisters
• And Much More…
Many medications can be transformed into colorful, pleasantly flavored dosage forms, which are dispensed in childproof packaging. Dozens of enticing flavors are available to our compounding pharmacists, who can enhance the taste and color of a medication without changing the medication’s effectiveness.
Unique Dosage Forms:
Many children have a very difficult time swallowing capsules or tablets, especially if they have to take more than one medication during the day.
Alternate Dosage Forms That Your Child Won’t Mind Taking:
• Oral Liquids
• Gummy Treats
• Topical Gels
• Effervescent Drinks
Some compounded medications can be administered using special pacifiers or bottles for infants – and most can be administered in any number of great flavors.
Strength and Ingredient Variations:
Each child is unique. Children differ in size and individual needs. Some have allergies and varying drug tolerances, requiring medications which are sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, soy-free, or dye-free. As a result, it can be a challenge to find a commercially available medication suitable for your child’s individual needs. Our pharmacist, working closely with your caring pediatrician can formulate a medication that meets all your child’s requirements.
