Pediatric Compounding

Many children have difficulty taking their medications. Some children resist taking liquid medicines due to their taste, some have difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules and many children just don't like taking medications. Many medications are not indicated for use in children and thus are not available in suitable concentrations for them, since children take much smaller doses of medications due to their smaller size.

At Holly Springs Pharmacy, specialized compounded medications are made especially for each child to help him or her take their medications:

  • Suspensions and solutions
  • Lollipops
  • Chewable medications
  • Lozenges
  • Popsicles
  • Transdermal gels

Compounded liquid medications can be made in a variety of flavors and colors that will entice children to take their medications. Transdermal gels allow the medication to be absorbed through the skin and into the blood stream and eliminates the need for the child to take the medication orally.

Compounded medications help children take their medicine regularly and thus improve their health and ensure their well-being. Contact Holly Springs Pharmacy to see how compounded medications can be helpful to your family!
