Caring for Kids (& their Families)
Med Time: A Chore No More
Does your little one fight you when it’s time to take medicine? You’re not alone. Kids refuse to take their meds for all kinds of reasons: color, texture, or even just because they know it’s medicine. They don’t feel well, and bad-tasting or hard-to-swallow medicine makes everything worse.
That fight makes med time a battle that’s hard to win, and it sometimes means that kids fall behind on their medication regimen and don’t feel better as quickly as they should.
When little patients are testing their parents' patience, it may be time to try a tailored solution. Let us help! Our pediatric compounding services make med time less of a chore for you and less of a nightmare for your child.

We can compound oral medications to taste good! A tastier formulation can improve compliance with your medication regimen, and it can help eliminate waste, too.
Lollipops are a popular option when prescribed a "swish and swallow" medicine that is meant to be kept in the mouth for a period of time. This formulation is great for not only giving kids their meds but also addressing canker sores, chemotherapy-related mouth sores, oral thrush, and Sjögren's Syndrome.

Whether the issue is taste, dosage, or the meds your child needs just aren't available commercially, we can work with your provider to address a variety of concerns, including:
