It’s no secret that most children dislike taking medication. Being sick is no fun, and taking medicine can often feel like it makes things worse. However, there are ways to make the experience more bearable.

Compounding, which is the art and science of creating personalized medications for patients. Whether it’s adding flavor to medications to make them more palatable or tailoring the strength and dosage form to suit a child’s specific needs, our compounding pharmacist can make taking medicine less stressful for both your child and you.

Custom compounded prescriptions are particularly well-suited for children. There are various reasons why commercially manufactured drug forms may not be suitable for every child, and compounding can provide numerous benefits for young patients.

By collaborating closely with a compounding pharmacist, your child’s pediatrician can prescribe medications for a range of purposes, including:

  • Pain relief
  • Respiratory disorders
  • Oral thrush
  • Diabetes
  • Head lice
  • Diaper rash
  • Skin disorders
  • Cold sores/fever blisters
  • And more!

Talk to our pharmacist if you are encountering medication challenges with your child. We can help!
