Medicine for Kids: What You Need to Know

Medicine for Kids: What You Need to Know 1024 536 Community Clinical Pharmacy

Customized and Compounded Pediatric Solutions

Keeping children healthy is a high priority for parents. When illness strikes your infant, toddler, or adolescent- you, as a parent, seek the best medication available as prescribed by a physician.

What should you know about giving medicine to children and what are the options for customizing medications to enhance their compliance and overall experience?

Pediatric Compounding

Children have varying needs when it comes to addressing illnesses and chronic conditions.

Sometimes commercially available medications that are manufactured in masses just don’t cut it.

Community Clinical Pharmacy in Mesa, Arizona formulates custom medications for children, with many flavor options (pictured above).

When kids are sick, it can be tough on everyone to attempt to force them to take a hard-to-swallow pill or a flavor they can’t bear. They also have specific requirements, allergies and other factors when considering any medication.

Parents may think that they are limited to commercially available prescription products but in reality, medication is not one-size-fits-all. Compounding may be the answer to your challenges with medication compliance. 

What Can Be Customized Through Compounding for Kids:

  • Specific Dosage
    • Customize concentration based on child’s weight and condition
  • Medication Forms
    • Choose the right form to ensure your child is able to ingest/apply medication in order to yield desired results
  • Flavoring
    • Choose from a variety of flavors (kids love fruit flavors)
  • Allergen-Free
    • Commercially available medications on the market may have ingredients that the child reacts negatively. Compounding allows us to provide more viable options.

What Are Some Popular Medication Forms in Pediatric Compounding?

  • Oral Liquid
  • Troche
  • Cream
  • Ointment
  • Nasal Spray
  • Gummies
  • Lollipops
  • Capsules
  • Tablets
  • More!

Medication Safety

Medication may still pose some risks, including overdosing, especially when they are easily within reach. Keep in mind that it’s riskier with flavored medicine that plenty of children equate with treats.

Ensure that you:

  • Talk to your kids about medicine safety
  • Keep the medicine in a secure location
  • Fill out a medication schedule
