Moye’s Pharmacy is proud to offer prescription compounding at our Stockbridge location.
It’s no secret that most kids don’t like taking medicine. There’s nothing fun about being sick, and taking medicine just seems to make it worse. But it doesn’t have to be that way. While there’s no guarantee that taking medicine ever will become an entirely pleasurable event, there are some ways to help.
One of the best involves contemporary pharmacy compounding, the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients. From flavoring medications to make them taste better, to providing individualized strengths and dosage forms, a compounding pharmacist can help make medication time easier and less stressful for your child – and you!
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. Moye’s can make a preparation with a taste your kids will enjoy.
Your kids’ medicine can’t be too strong. If your doctor prescribes medicine that’s 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. Our pediatric compounding pharmacist can help create pills that are right for kids.
Each child is unique. Children differ in size and individual needs. Some have allergies and varying drug tolerances, requiring medications which are sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, soy-free, or dye-free. As a result, can be a challenge to find a commercially available medication suitable for your child’s individual needs. A compounding pharmacist working closely with a caring pediatrician can formulate a medication which meets all the child’s requirements.
