Benefits of a Pediatric Compounding Pharmacy

Being sick is no fun and most kids don’t like taking medicine. Often they have a difficult time swallowing pills or simply do not like the taste of medication.

Standard pharmacies may only carry standard drugs may be too strong for children because they are only available in adult dosages. The medicines also may be bitter and unpleasant tasting which can make it difficult to get a child to take the prescription.

Compounded pediatric medications are personalized for the individual needs of your child. We formulate customized medications in the right strength and dosage form for young patients. Compounded prescriptions are a great alternative for prescription drugs that may not meet the needs of children.
