Personalized Pediatric Medications from the Custom Medication Experts
How We Help
A one-year-old patient who suffered from constant seizures wasn’t capable of taking oral medications as he’d just spit them out.
Our pharmacy offered the option of making the medication into a suppository for the child and contacted the doctor to discuss this option.
Neither mom nor the doctor were aware that the medication could be compounded into a suppository.
Mom picked up the new medication and called us back the following day to thank us for custom making an alternative dosage form that really helped her child.
Giving Medicine to Kids can be a Challenge
We know that children can present several challenges when it comes to taking their medications. Some children may resist taking a liquid medicine due to the taste. Other children may have difficulty swallowing pills.
Also, many medications aren’t labeled for children. If a medication isn’t approved for use in infants and children, it typically isn’t available in a suitable pediatric dosage form.
A Custom Solution for Children’s Medication
Every child is unique and interesting. Because of this, we take a personalized approach. A spoonful of sugar may make your child’s medicine go down, but if it doesn’t our pharmacy can help. Preston’s Pharmacy creates customized medication suspensions in many pleasant flavors such as:
- Cotton Candy
- Bubble Gum
- Pinã Colada
- Root Beer
- Tutti Fruiti
Call us for a full list of choices.
Our pharmacy also has the ability to customize medications into many different dosage forms, including:
- Topical Creams
- Rapid Dissolve Tablets
- Gummy Shapes
These are available in a rainbow of colors that make it more fun for your child to take their medication. We mix custom medications for a variety of common pediatric conditions such as:
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Diaper Rash
- Fungal Infections
- Head Lice
- Molluscum Contagiosum
- Nausea & Vomiting
Helping Put Smiles Back on Faces
Our tailor-made compounded formulations may offer you and your child real advantages over regular commercially-available products. These advantages may include:
- Better Compliance: Your child is more likely to take his or her medicine.
- Less Waste: Less resistance means fewer spills, and less lost medicine.
- Improved Outcomes: It’s not a mystery, when kids take their medicine, it helps them get better!
Using a team approach, our pharmacists work directly with patients, caregivers, and pediatricians to come up with the best solution to pediatric medication challenges.
Because medicine only helps when a child actually takes it, it’s so important to come up with the best option for each individual child. Call and speak to one of our friendly pharmacists to hear more about the benefits of custom-made medications.
