Pediatricians, parents and pharmacists often have to think outside the box when it comes to medications for pediatrics. Medications may not always come in the appropriate strength or a convenient dosage form for children. Compounding pharmacies can make medications in the correct dose for younger patients.
Getting kids to take their medication can be complicated as well. However, the Compounding Lab at Gateway Pharmacy can make it easier on both the parent and the child by compounding medicines into different dosage forms including: suspensions, solutions, lollipops, popsicles, capsules, nasal sprays, or suppositories. With over 40 different flavors to choose from, we are sure there is something that your little one will like.
Our flavor choices include but are not limited to apple, banana cream, bubble gym, cherry, cinnamon, grape, marshmallow, peppermint, tangerine, raspberry, tutti frutti, watermelon, and vanilla.
