Children and Medicine: A Special Challenge

Children can present several challenges when it comes to taking their medications. Some children may resist taking a liquid medicine due its taste, others may have difficulty swallowing pills. Also, many children have a fear of injections, leads to different problems altogether.

Also, many medications aren’t labeled for children. If a medicine isn’t approved for use in infants and children, it typically isn’t available in a suitable pediatric dosage forms.

Dunwoody Pharmacy: A Custom Solution for Children’s Oral Medication

Dunwoody Pharmacy can help your child’s medicine go down with less resistance, by compounding oral medications into many pleasantly flavored forms, including:

  • Suspensions
  • Solutions

Dunwoody Pharmacy Offers Alternatives to Oral Medication

With a healthcare provider’s prescription, we also may be able to compound some children’s drugs into transdermal gels. These gels are applied to an appropriate site, like a child’s wrist, where they are absorbed through the skin to quickly enter the bloodstream.
