As most parents are well aware, taking care of a sick child can be quite a challenge. The fact that children commonly dislike taking medication only complicates the management of your child’s care. Some of these difficulties can be removed by the creative approach we take to pediatric medication administration.
Compounded pediatric medications from Nora Apothecary for infants and children can have a positive effect on a child’s ability to take a medication. Children are not able to swallow tablets or capsules until they reach a certain age. They may also require a particular strength of a drug because of their age or weight. Some medications that are commercially available in specific dosage forms and strengths may not be suitable for your child, leaving you without options.
At Nora, many medications can be prepared in several different dosage forms and various strengths that will work for your child.
Does your child have an allergy or dietary restriction? A sugar free medication, dye-free medication, or medication free of inactive ingredients can be specially prepared for your child. We will work closely together with your child’s pediatrician to find the best dosage form for your child’s medication.
Pediatric dosage forms include:
- Flavored suspensions
- Dissolving sublingual troches
- Transdermal gels
- Tutti frutti
Nora Apothecary Offers Alternatives to Oral Medication
With a healthcare provider’s prescription, we also may be able to compound some children’s drugs into transdermal gels. These gels may be applied to an appropriate site, like a child’s wrist, where they are absorbed through the skin to enter the bloodstream.
