Kids are made for having fun, not taking medicine.
Children are especially suited for custom compounded prescriptions, as commercially manufactured drug forms are often not the best solutions for kids. Working closely with a Juro's compounding pharmacists, your child's pediatrician can prescribe medications for pain relief, respiratory disorders, oral thrush, diabetes, head lice, diaper rash, skin disorders, cold sores/fever blisters and more.
A spoonful of sugar certainly helps the medicine go down.
The child who refuses to take his other medicine because of the taste is a prime opportunity for considering compounded medication. Dozens of flavors are available to compounding pharmacists, who can enhance the taste and color of a medication, while also ensuring that the flavor's pH is compatible with the medication's properties. Your child won't mind taking medicine as much when it tastes like bubblegum or even chocolate.
Here are some of our fabulous flavors:
- Banana Cream
- Root Beer
- Strawberry Crème
- Vanilla Butternut
Unique Dosage Forms
Why not make giving your child medication easier?
Many children have a very difficult time swallowing capsules or tablets, especially if they have to take more than one medication during the day. To solve this problem, your pediatrician and compounding pharmacist can develop and prepare medications in alternate dosage forms your child won't mind taking. These include lollipops, gummy bears, syrups, suspensions, freezer pops, lozenges, transdermal gels and even pacifier dosages for infants, and all can be delivered in any number of great flavors.
Your child is unique, why shouldn't his treatment be?
Children vary in size and weight. Some have allergies and varying drug tolerances. As a result, it's often a challenge to find a commercially available medication suitable for the individual needs of your child. Juro's Compounding Center can be of help in formulating a medication which comes in the exact dose needed for a child of a certain age and size.
