Children are full of life, energy, and the curiosity to try new things with a SMILE. If you bring a medicine bottle out of the cabinet, those smiles may turn into tears. Kids just don't like medicine and sometimes it seems there's nothing you can do about it. There isn't anything fun about being sick and taking medicine.

While there isn't a guarantee that taking medicine will ever become an entirely pleasurable experience, there are some ways to help. One of the best ways involves contemporary pharmaceutical compounding. Working closely with a compounding pharmacist, 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. Compounding can benefit patients in a variety of ways.

Strength Variations

Your child is unique. Children vary in size and weight. Some have allergies and varying drug tolerances. As a result, it's often a challenge to find a commercially available medication suitable for the individual needs of your child. A compounding pharmacist can be of help in formulation a medication which come in the exact dose needed for a child of a certain age and size.

Flavored Medicine

The child who refuses to take his or her medicine because of the taste is a prime opportunity for considering compounded medication. Dozens of flavors are available to compounding pharmacists, who can enhance the taste and color of a medication, while also ensuring that the flavor's pH level is compatible with the medication's properties. Your child won't mind taking medicine as much when it tastes like bubble gum or even chocolate.
