Pediatric Care: Making it BetterAre you seeking a simple, easier way to get your child to take his or her medicine?
As parents and caretakers, we all know the challenges of getting children to take their daily doses of medicine. They often disapprove of the flavor, taste, texture—and even color—and getting them to take their prescribed dosages usually becomes some type of battle. Through its unique customization process and modern-day medical solutions, The Compounding Facility aims to ease the entire process. Through a fusion of art and science, our expert team can customize many types of medications, specially tailoring them to your child’s specific wants and needs.
Rather than providing a one-size-fits-all solution, The Compounding Facility has the unique ability to customize flavors and provide individualized strengths and dosages. If ‘chocolate’ is her favorite flavor, we can customize a special medication just for her. If lollipops or gummy treats are what he craves, we can create a lollipop-style or gummy-like medication exclusively for him. Let us make a special medication for your child. We promise—we’re here to make it all better.
Pediatric Compounding: Ideal solutions for kids
We all know that no two children are alike. They all have their own unique personalities and preferences. We soon come to realize that there’s not a magic solution that will work for all of them. That’s exactly what makes The Compounding Facility’s customized compounded prescriptions so ideal for kids.
Long ago, we realized that commercially manufactured, mass produced drugs may not always meet the specific dietary or even the taste preferences of each child. So, we’ve created a concept that truly works for your family. While working closely with your pediatrician, we can customize the medications prescribed for most ailments including the following ones:
- Cold sores and fever blisters
- Diaper rash
- Head lice
- Oral thrush
- Pain relief
- Respiratory disorders
- Skin disorders
Flavored Medications: Creating a Flavorful Experience
Whether its texture, taste or simply the fact that most children are all too aware that they’re taking some form of “yucky medication,” they may refuse to take their prescribed medicines. Wouldn’t it be a completely different experience if we could create a customized solution that worked just for them?
The Compounding Facility can transform ordinary medications into colorful, yummy-flavored child-friendly dosages that are distributed in safe, childproof packaging. Although one child may crave a specific flavor, another may desire a different form such as a lollipop or drink. That’s what makes kids so different. Since children are particular when it comes to flavors, textures and tastes, having the ability to tailor their medications specifically to their needs and wants is certainly a concept worth exploring.
An extensive menu of flavors are available, so come experiment with our wide array of offerings. Without altering a medication’s effectiveness, our compounding pharmacist can change its taste and color.
Various Forms: Create your own medicine
Beyond taste and texture, many children simply don’t feel comfortable swallowing large capsules or tablets. Putting their medication into another form may make all the difference. After all, what child doesn’t enjoy a lollipop or a gummy-like treat? Understanding your child’s needs and wants is the first step in the compounding process. Your pediatrician and our compounding pharmacist can work together to create medications in unique dosage formats that will go down a lot easier. These include:
- Effervescent drinks
- Gummy treats
- Oral liquids
- Topical gels
- Simplifying Infant Care: Just for infants–some medications provide simple and natural administration via pacifiers or bottles. A variety of flavor options are also available.
Dosage and Ingredients
At The Compounding Facility, we truly understand that children have highly individualized needs. Beyond having their own likes and dislikes, many children have specific allergies, dietary restrictions or other types of intolerances. Some may need medications that are sugar-free while others may need medications that are gluten-free, soy-free, dye-free or casein-free.
As parents and caretakers, we know the challenges of easily locating over-the-counter medications that will suit your child’s needs. One of our compounding pharmacists will work closely with your pediatrician to formulate a special medication that is tailored to the unique needs of your child.
Individualized pediatric care can make all the difference in the life of you and your child. Consult with your healthcare provider or pharmacist today to find out what personalized compounded prescriptions can do for your family.
