Pediatric Compounding

Some children have difficulty swallowing capsules or tablets. Pediatricians and compounding pharmacists can work together to find alternative dosage forms for children. These include lollipops, syrups, freezer pops, lozenges, gummies, even pacifiers and baby bottles for infants. We can flavor liquid medications to make them easier for children to take. This is particularly important with medications that need to be taken for an extended period of time. With a choice of many flavors, we can make just about any medication taste better.
