Compounding for the Pediatric Patient:
Each child is unique. Commercially available medications don’t always consider the variations in size, weight, allergies, and drug tolerance. Let’s also not forget that not all kids have the same taste buds! Almost every prescription can be flavored to each child’s liking when preparing a compounded medication. We can compound flavored suspensions as well as medicated lollipops. Topical preparations for conditions such as diaper rashes, psoriasis, and eczema are some other examples of preparations that can be customized for each individual child.
