Pediatric compounding is very helpful to parents who are trying to give their child medication. Many times children are resistant to the taste, consistency, color, or even the dosage form of the medication that has been prescribed by the doctor. The Apothecary Shoppe’s compounding pharmacists are experts on different methods on getting precious children to take their medication. The pharmacists will work together with the parents and the pediatrician to ensure that the child gets their full dose of medication every time. Here are a few ways how we can customize a child’s medication:
- Prepare the drug in a different dosage form- The Apothecary Shoppe can make medications into a topical cream, a liquid, a dissolvable tablet, or many other forms.
- Flavor the medication- This helps make the medication more appealing and palatable for children.
- Eliminate anything that the child may be allergic to- If a child is allergic to gluten, dye, or casein, The Apothecary Shoppe can compound the drug without these items as well as many others.
- Individual Dosing- Depending on a child’s weight and age, The Apothecary Shoppe can prepare the medication to be the optimal dose for a specific child.
The Apothecary Shoppe can do many more customized medications for children so please read on to see how we can help you and your child.
