It’s no secret that kids don’t like taking medicine, which can create various challenges when it comes to medication time. Many children may resist having to take medication for a variety of reasons such as its taste, texture and color; have difficulty swallowing capsules or tablets; or simply because they know it’s medicine. For this reason alone, children are especially suited for custom compounded prescriptions.
Working closely with you and your child’s pediatrician, we can custom tailor medications to meet your child’s individual needs, in a more “kid-friendly” form; not found in commercially manufactured prescription medications. We can transform virtually any medication into colorful, pleasantly flavored dosage forms a child won’t mind taking. Here are some examples:
- Flavored suspensions
- Oral Solutions/Syrups
- Freezer Pops
- Flavored Lollipops
- Gummy Treats
- Topical Creams & Gels
Each child is unique, differing in size and individual needs. Some have allergies and varying drug tolerances, requiring medications that are sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, and soy-free or in some cases, dye-free. With pediatric compounding, we can formulate a prescription to exclude these ingredients.
From flavoring conventional medications to make them taste better, to providing individualized strength and dosage forms, we can make medication time easier and less stressful for your child – and you!
