When it comes to medicating your child, sometimes one size, dosage form, or flavor does not fit all. That’s when it’s time for you and your physician to call Healthway Compounding Pharmacy. When the need arises, Healthway can custom make your child’s medication to meet his or her individual needs.*
Each child is unique. Variations in size, weight, allergies and drug tolerance can pose a problem when dealing only with commercially available medications. A compounding pharmacist can aid in formulating a medication that will meet the needs of your child. Below is a list of potential needs.
Many children have difficulty swallowing capsules or tablets. Pediatricians and compounding pharmacists can work together to find alternative dosage forms for your child. These include lollipops, syrups, solutions, and lozenges.
We can flavor liquid medications to make them easier for children to take. This is particularly important with medications that need to be taken for an extended period of time. With a choice of many FLAVORS, we can make just about any medication taste better!
For infants, we even have a number of prescription diaper rash formulas.*
Some flavors may not be compatible with certain medications.
