What Is Pediatric Compounding?
Kids and Medicine: A Special Challenge
Parents know that children can present several challenges when it comes to taking their medications. Some children may resist taking a liquid medicine due its taste. Some have difficulty swallowing pills. And many children have a fear of injections.
Also, many medications aren't labeled for children. If a medicine isn't approved for use in infants and children, it usually isn't available in a suitable pediatric dosage form.
Riverside Pharmacy and Compounding Shop: A Custom Solution for Children's Oral Medication

- Rapid Dissolve Tablets
- "Gummy Shapes"
...in a rainbow of colors that makes it more fun for your child to take the medication.
Riverside Pharmacy and Compounding Shop Offers Alternatives to Oral Medication
With a healthcare provider's prescription, we also may be bale to compound some children's drugs into transdermal gels. These gels may be applied to an appropriate site, like a child's wrist, where they are absorbed through the skin to enter the bloodstream.
