Most kids don’t like taking medicine. 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!
We work together with Pediatricians, families, and their children to customize pediatric medications and meet specific needs.
Children pose many challenges when it comes to medication. They may resist having to take a medication, dislike the taste or texture, have difficulty swallowing solid dosage forms, and are fearful of injections. Most medications are not labeled for pediatric populations, and when a medication is not approved for use in infants and children, it is usually not available in a suitable pediatric dosage form.
“Drugs don’t work if people don’t take them.”
