Making it easier for little ones to take their medications
The benefits of prescription compounding
Compounded prescriptions are specifically formulated for your patient in our state-of-the-art USP 800-compliant compounding lab.
Pharmaca’s clinically trained compounding pharmacists can combine different ingredients to create an individualized medication for patients, in tailored strengths or dosages, which makes it ideal for pediatric compounding.
Compounded prescriptions can also be made without common allergens, dyes, parabens, alcohol and more—ensuring your smallest patient gets just the medication they need and nothing they don’t.
Pediatric patients may benefit most from compounding
While many helpful medicines are available in commercial forms, their delivery methods can be difficult to swallow or ill-tasting to most children. Compounding can help make these medications easier to take and encourage compliance. It can also be helpful for children under the age of 6 months who should not have preservatives.
Common uses for pediatric compounds
- Nausea & vomiting
- Sore throat
- Diaper rash
- Dental procedures
- Pain relief
- Behavioral issues
- Acid reflux
Flavors & administration routes
Tasty medications can be made in a variety of flavors, such as cherry, bubblegum, grape, tutti frutti and more—and come in easy-to-administer dosage forms such as lollipops, suspensions, suppositories or lozenges.
