Compounding and kids – how we can help

There’s no harder time in the life of a parent than when their child is sick. The overwhelming need to comfort them and ‘make it all go away’ is foremost in the mind of the worried Mum or Dad. We want them to get better – fast – and to make the remedy as painless as possible.

No child likes taking pills and when those pills are huge, or the child is an infant and unable to swallow large pills, the situation becomes even more difficult for a parent already under stress. Nobody likes forcing a sick and crying child to swallow a large, hard tablet, least of all a parent.

One of the ways a compounding pharmacy can help is by preparing your child’s medication as a liquid formulation. The medication is exactly the same as the one prescribed by the doctor, just prepared to order as a liquid rather than a hard pill. In most cases it doesn’t cost any more either.

If you’re having trouble administering pills and tablets to your child, talk to you doctor about the option of having the medication prepared as a liquid by a compounding pharmacist. All we need is a script from your doctor and we’ll take care of the rest. We can arrange for you can pick up the prepared medicine from a pharmacy close to you, and we also deliver Australia wide.
