Pediatric Dosing and Flavoring

Discover the Advantages of Compounded Medications for Children

 

 

There is nothing more frustrating for a parent than to see their child struggling with an illness.  It may also be a difficult task to make sure your child is able and willing to take their medication. Fortunately, at Prime Pharmacy, we can help.  We are able to prepare customized medications to fit your child’s unique needs.

FLAVORING FOR PEDIATRIC MEDICATIONS

 

Many younger children have a hard time swallowing pills and don’t like the taste of commercial medication.  Typically, if a child is unable to swallow a pill or capsule that is commercially available, we are able to compound the identical medication in a liquid form and flavor them with a kid-friendly, palatable flavor.

 

Along with customizing proper strengths, Prime Pharmacy can flavor medications and prepare a one-of-a-kind dosage form to make giving children their medicine a little easier.  When adding flavors, our knowledgeable staff will make suggestions on flavors best suited for the medication to make it more palatable.  Flavoring** and unique dosage forms of compounded medications that are available in pediatric compounding include, but are not limited to, the following:

Flavors

 

  • Bubble Gum
  • Tutti-Frutti
  • Grape
  • Cherry
  • Orange
  • Strawberry
  • Watermelon

Dosage Forms

 

  • Oral liquids/suspensions
  • Topical creams
  • Topical gels
  • Oral rinses
  • Lollipops
  • Troches

MEDICATION INGREDIENTS SIDE-EFFECTS

 

Besides the unpleasant taste of traditional medications, some children may not tolerate the fillers or preservatives that are used.  Additionally, some children require a medication that is also free of sugar, gluten, dyes, and casein.

With a compounded medication, Prime Pharmacy can use ingredients that may be better suited for your child.

PEDIATRIC DOSAGE

 

 

 

Commercial medications may come in doses that are not suitable for children and cutting the pills into lower doses may be a difficult task to execute.  Along with a pediatrician’s prescription, Prime Pharmacy can prepare a unique and custom dose of medication(s) for your child.

  • Oral issues (thrush, cold sores, blisters)
  • Medicated diaper rash creams
  • Pain relief
  • Diabetes
