Pediatrics

Children are excellent candidates for using compounded solutions. The lack of investment and drug development in the pediatric market limits availability to medicinal solutions for the pediatric population. Fuss and stress for both parent and child can be eliminated by choosing the right compounded formulation. Children resist having to take medication, dislike the taste or texture, or may have difficulty swallowing solid dosage forms. Compounded oral medications can be developed with pleasant flavors, lollipops or lozenges can take away the anxiety with taking medication. A palatable formulation is more likely to improve compliance and minimize waste. Transdermal applications, lollipops, gummy bears, lozenges, medicinal pacifiers, and medicated chocolate cubes are common compounded applications for children.
