We collaborate with healthcare practitioners, children, and their families to create custom medications that meet specific needs.
Children can face difficulties with medications, such as resistance, dislike of taste or texture, swallowing challenges, and fear of injections.
The pharmaceutical industry often doesn't invest in developing drugs specifically for children due to the limited pediatric market. As a result, many medications are not available in suitable forms for children. However, our compounding pharmacy can help by creating oral medications in pleasant flavors like suspensions, solutions, concentrates, or lozenges. These formulations are enticing to children and increase compliance, reducing spillage or waste during administration. Additionally, most drugs can be compounded into transdermal gels, allowing absorption through the skin when applied to an appropriate site like the child's wrist.
Compounding medications requires careful consideration of physical and chemical properties to ensure effectiveness and safety. It involves selecting ingredients, determining taste, color, fragrance, viscosity, uniformity, texture, and stability. The technique and equipment used, as well as the quality and purity of ingredients, affect the efficacy of the compounded medication.
Our compounding pharmacy is committed to providing customized medications that cater to the unique needs of children, improving their medication experience and overall well-being.
