Compounded Pediatric Medications

Children pose many challenges when it comes to medication: they may resist having to take a medication, dislike the taste or texture, have difficulty swallowing solid dosage forms, and are fearful of injections.  These challenges, when not dealt with properly or completely could lead to children not following a treatment program to its successful solution.

Compounding pharmacists at Health Dimensions Clinical Pharmacy work with pediatricians to provide customized medications to directly address whatever adherence issue might exist.

How is compounding for pediatric patients helpful?

Many medications are only commercially available in certain forms and dosages.  If that medication is not specifically made for pediatric use, it may not come in a form most readily accepted by children. 

Health Dimensions Clinical Pharmacy can provide medications that are in dosages or forms that are tailored for the individual pediatric patient.
