Children offer a unique challenge for every parent when it comes to administering medication. Many drugs taste terrible. Others are in tablets too large to swallow. Some aren’t even made for children. In cases where a medication is manufactured in liquid form, it often doesn’t meet the taste requirements of children. Pediatricians and compounding pharmacists can work together to find alternative dosage forms for your child.

Several dosage forms are possible:

  • Lollipop
  • “Gummy bear” lozenge
  • Suspension, liquid
  • Suppository
  • Effervescent powder
  • Topical cream

With a choice of many flavors, we can make just about any medication taste better:

  • Apple
  • Banana
  • Banana-orange
  • Bubblegum
  • Chocolate
  • Cherry
  • Grape
  • Lemon
  • Marshmallow
  • Mint
  • Orange
  • Raspberry
  • Strawberry
  • Grape-bubblegum
  • Watermelon
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate-Mint
  • …and more

The medication flavours are dye-free (most), sugar-free, alcohol-free(most), sodium free, phosphate free, gluten free, casein free and non-allergenic. Why go home with bad tasting medicine, when you can go home with Chocolate Banana flavoured medicine?
