Children pose many challenges when it comes to medication. Children resist having to take their medicine, may dislike the taste or texture, have difficulty swallowing, and of course, fear injections! At The Custom Compounding Center, we can help make taking medicine a pleasant experience. By working with your prescriber, we can make your child’s medicine into a suitable pediatric dosage and form your child will be willing—maybe even excited! —to take. We can compound oral medications into pleasantly flavored suspensions, solutions, “gummy” treats, even lollipops! Most medications can be compounded into transdermal gels that can be easily rubbed into the wrist to allow for absorption of the medication.
Flavoring can be added to most compounded medications to facilitate compliance and palatability. We have a large variety of flavors that can be added to your child’s medicine. Some of the most popular flavors include bubble gum, tropical punch, cotton candy, lemon-lime, and raspberry—just to name a few. So, the next time your child refuses his antibiotic suspension, let the Custom Compounding Center pharmacist make it more ‘kid-friendly’ by adding flavoring!
