When Your Child Can’t or Won’t take their Medicine, Try a Compounding Pharmacy
Parents struggle whenever their little ones are sick, but it’s especially troublesome when the medicine bottle clearly states, “not recommended for children under the age of 6.” What you may not know is that a compounding pharmacy works with your pediatrician’s instructions to create customized oral solutions or topical gels to get your little one healthy again.
Medicine doesn’t have to taste like medicine
Even when your child is old enough to take the recommended dose of a commercially branded medicine, they may not like the flavor.
A compounding pharmacy, like Nora Apothecary, can transform giving medicine into a more pleasant experience. Flavors like cherry, orange, grape, and even tutti frutti can change your child’s attitude about taking their medicine.
Need a specific dosage?
There may be instances when your child needs a specific dosage of a medication, or a specific combination of medications at certain concentrations, that is not commercially available. A compounding pharmacy creates custom medication tailored to every individual’s unique needs, For your child, that means ensuring they are getting the appropriate dosage and treatment for their condition.
Can’t take pills?
Is your child unable to swallow pills? Medications that are traditionally in pill form can be made into a liquid suspension so they are easier to take. Imagine how much easier it would be to treat your child’s condition if instead of having to take a pill, they can drink a liquid that tastes like grape! A medication can’t work if a child won’t take it, and we can solve that.
Sensitive to additives?
Many commercially available medications have additives and/or preservatives that your child may be sensitive or allergic to. A compounding pharmacy, like Nora Apothecary, can make your child’s medication so it is free of these added ingredients.
