It’s no secret that most kids don’t like taking medicine. There’s nothing fun about being sick and taking medicine just seems to make it worse. However, it doesn’t have to be that way.

While there’s no guarantee that taking medicine ever will become an entirely pleasurable event, there are some ways to help. From flavoring medications to make them taste better, to providing individualized strengths and dosage forms, a compounding pharmacist can help make medication time easier and less stressful for your child – and you!

Many children have a very difficult time swallowing capsules or tablets, especially if they have to take more than one medication during the day. To solve this problem, your pediatrician and compounding pharmacist can work together to develop and prepare medications in alternate dosage forms your child won’t mind taking. These include:

  • Oral liquids
  • Lollipops
  • Gummy treats
  • Topical gels and creams
  • Suppositories

Some compounded medications can be administered using special pacifiers or bottles for infants – and most can be administered in any number of great flavors.

Common treatments include:
  • Pain relief
  • Nausea & vomiting
  • Oral thrush
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
