Why a Pediatric Compounding Pharmacy?

curious-babyEver have sick child? Ever wish you could take away the sickness, even if it meant being sick yourself? There’s not much that’s more frustrating than trying to help a sick kid get better. One of the worst parts: Making sure your child is able — and willing — to take his medicine. But fortunately, there are pediatric compounding pharmacies— like The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills.

As a parent, you’ve probably heard all the reasons why kids can’t (or won’t) take their medicine. As it happens, though, the pediatric compounding pharmacists at The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills know them too. And we’re here to help.

A pediatric compounding pharmacy should be able to provide easy-to-swallow pills. Kids have different digestive systems than adults, and sometimes little throats can’t abide big pills. If your kid needs a medicine that’s only available in pill form, compounding experts can make those pills smaller, or prepare a liquid solution.

Your kids are looking for a tasty pediatric compound, and a pharmacy that only carries standard drugs might not have them in a flavor your kids can deal with. The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills can make a preparation with a taste your kids will enjoy. That includes turning your kids’ medicine into things like lollipops and gummi bears.

Your kids’ medicine can’t be too strong. If your doctor prescribes medicine that is only available in adult doses, you’re going to need a professional to develop a smaller dosage that’s more suited to still-developing systems. A pediatric compounding pharmacist can help create pills that are right for kids.

Sometimes your child needs something better than standard over-the-counter medications. At The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills, we pride ourselves on the comforting, welcoming environment we provide for all clients, young and old. You, your child and your doctor need a place where you can explore multiple options, and our professionals understand that.

The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills provides unique solutions to unique problems. Whether it’s transdermal gels to rub on your child’s wrist, a lollipop lozenge to soothe his sore throat, or a diaper rash ointment to counteract the digestive acids that result in irritation. It’s why we’re the premier pediatric compounding pharmacy in Los Angeles!
