Helping kids to feel well as soon as possible!

Children can often be found to benefit most from compounding. Often, parents have a tough time getting their children to take medicine because of the taste. A compounding pharmacist can work directly with the physician and the patient to select a flavoring agent, which provides both an appropriate match for the medication’s properties and the patient’s taste preferences. Alternatively a compounding pharmacist can provide a topical preparation that the physician has prescribed.

And because no one child is the same as another
It can be a difficult task giving children medication and thus achieving compliance. As every parent knows, convincing a child to take their medicine can be somewhat of a challenge. A compounded formulation can also take into account considerations like variations in body size, weight, allergies and drug tolerance and overcome problems that rise when dealing only with commercially available medications. 

Compounding can help solve these problems. By working closely with your child’s physician, our compounding pharmacist can assist in formulating the medicine that will meet the unique needs of your child. Examples include the relief of pain, oral thrush, respiratory disorders, head lice, nappy rash, skin disorders, cold sores and many other conditions symptomatic of illness.

Features and Benefits of paediatric compounding
A variety of administration forms to achieve compliance:  Many children have difficulty swallowing capsules or tablets. Physicians and compounding pharmacists can work together to find an alternative dosage for your child across an array of forms. Compounding has the ability to create medications into a variety of other forms, such as palatable syrups using a variety of flavours, lozenges, suppositories and lotions or creams. 

A strength to suit your childs individual needs: We can formulate medications based on your childs size and weight as the dosage required may vary from child to child. Often commercially available medications can be too high in dosages for a child. Compounding can resolve this.

Consolidating multiple medications into one easy form: Unfortunately some children require multiple medications, sometimes regularly through the day. We can make it easier for the child, parents and carers by consolidating the exact dose of medications required into a single convenient form. Discuss this with your Physician and contact us to find out if this is possible in your particular case.

A wide range of flavours available: We can add a particular flavour from a wide and yummy range, to syrups and liquid preparations or lozenges.This will help with your childs compliance over a short or longer period as it becomes a more pleasant experience for their taste buds.

Intolerences: These days as we become more aware that some children can have an intolerence to commercially available medications due to them often containing preservatives, dyes, alcohol or sugar, we can formulate medications that are free of these substances.
