Our Expert’s Take on Compounding for Kids

February 25, 2021 | Kids

If you’ve ever been to State Street Pharmacy, you’ve probably seen or met Victor, our compounding wiz. He’s the man in charge of creating a wide assortment of custom prescriptions. Here’s what he has to say about compounding for kids.

“Big drug companies only make a few different strengths of medication in order to stay profitable. However, a lot of the time, these are too high for children. Cutting pills in half doesn’t provide an accurate dosage so, instead, we can create a lower strength prescription for them. We can also make it taste better with a variety of flavors and sweeteners. Like everyone else, kids just want their medication to taste good! If taking pills is the problem, we can also make it into a liquid, gummy, or lollipop form. Custom medications are available for treating everything from reflux to diaper rash, mouth and throat pain, coughs or colds, ear and sinus infections, fever, pain, oral yeast or thrush, acne, and more.”
