More Effective Than A Spoonful of Sugar.
For various reasons, commercially manufactured drug forms sometimes may not meet the needs of every child. Your child’s pediatrician can prescribe medications for pain relief’ respiratory disorders; oral thrush; diabetes; head lice; diaper rash; skin disorders; cold sores/fever blisters and more.
Many children refuse medication because of its texture or color, or simply because they know it is medicine. Medication can be transformed into colorful, pleasantly flavored dosage forms, which are dispensed in childproof packaging. Dozens of enticing flavors are available to compounding pharmacists, who can enhance the taste and color of a medication without changing the medication’s effectiveness.
Unique Dosage Forms
Your pediatrician and compound pharmacist can develop and prepare medications in alternate dosage forms your child won’t mind taking. These include oral liquids, lollipops, gummy treats, topical gels, effervescent drinks, and even pacifier or bottle dosages for infants. Most can be administered in any number of great flavors and can also be sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, soy-free, or dye-free.
