Pediatrics
When a child simply can’t or won’t take their medicine, or the size or dosage isn’t appropriate, it may be time to call Custom Medicine Pharmacenter. Our compounding pharmacists can customize medication to meet a child’s individual needs.

Many children have difficulty swallowing capsules or tablets. Pediatricians and compounding pharmacists can work together to find alternative dosage forms for your child.
Pediatric Dosage Forms
Flavored Suspensions Turns yucky tablets into yummy liquid
Dauber Bottle Ideal for liquid preparations
Emollient Cream Great for dermatological conditions
Lip Balm Applicators Super for "spot" application
Lollipops Fun dosage form for slow delivery
Oral Syringes Improve dosing accuracy
Pediatric Dosing Bottle Provides a convenient, familiar way to deliver medication
Popsicles Another oral alternative during summer
Rapid Dissolve Tablets Alternative for children who spit out medicine
Troches Lozenges that dissolve in the mouth
Pediatric Flavors
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 almost 50 FLAVORS, we can make just about any medication taste better!

For infants, we even have a number of prescription diaper rash formulas.
