How to make sodium benzoate taste better

how we make sodium benzoate taste better

If you or a loved-one takes sodium benzoate for a urea disorder – or any other disorder for that matter – you’ll know how unpleasant the experience can be. The taste is offensive and leaves a lasting impression.

And in the case of the elderly, it can sometimes be a very difficult task administering something that tastes so bitter, to someone who doesn’t understand it’s necessity.

This is an area where a compounding pharmacist can help. Disguising the taste of sodium benzoate is a task with which we are very familiar. With a script from your doctor, or other medical practitioner we can make up sodium benzoate, as a liquid, in flavours that disguise the bitter tase of the medication. Flavours like raspberry, banana, butterscotch, chocolate, vanilla and even bubble gum are all on the menu and can be added without diminishing the efficacy of the medication.

Making something taste like a fairground treat might seem like a lightweight service, however it can actually be crucial in ensuring patients adhere to their treatment plan. Patients are more likely to skip pill-time if a medicine is offensive to the palate and missed medication can lead to adverse health outcomes.

By improving the administration experience for the patient, you’re increasing the odds of adherence and therefore improving the long-term effectiveness of the treatment plan.

And for carers, making administration of sodium benzoate less of a confrontational ordeal, is certainly a welcome change and improves the quality of their day.

If you or someone you care for could benefit from sodium benzoate compounded in a range of agreeable flavours, contact National Custom Compounding on 1300 731 755 or drop a line to [email protected].

We can work with you and your medical practitioner to supply medication that doesn’t leave a bad taste in the mouth.
