Children are delicate, and a trusted compounding pharmacy can be an asset to their health. While most medications have been developed to be compatible with children, in some cases your child may need a smaller, more specific dose of medication that is not available commercially or at other pharmacies. When this need comes up, we can help.
Smaller or Specialized Doses for Children
Compounding pharmacies create safe medications in doses that cannot be found commercially. For example, a child may need a dose of medication that is currently only available to adults. If this issue occurs, we can create the medication in the dose specific to your child’s needs, to make it safer and more effective. We can also develop medications for children who have allergies or who are unable to swallow the larger tablets that are available on the market.
A Compounding Pharmacy Provides Help When You Need it Most
Some children just do not like the taste of a medication and will refuse to take it unless it is altered. When your child’s well-being is at stake, you would do anything to help them. We can make dire situations easier by customizing medications for your child’s needs— even down to the details like creating the medication in their favorite flavor or in lollipop or gummy bear form. We will work closely with your child’s pediatrician or specialist to find an exact solution for their ailment.
Specific Conditions or Disorders
Some illnesses are unique to children or more prevalent among children. Many problems that fall into this category may require treatment from our pharmacy including common conditions like:
- Strep throat
- Pink eye
- Ear infections
- Severe allergies
- Digestive ailments or sensitivities
- Skin conditions
At our pharmacy, we not only provide medications but we also use supplements in order to improve the health of our patients. We encourage you to speak with our pharmacist to find out if something as simple as a specific vitamin can help to improve your child’s health.
