Pediatric Compounding

Customized flavors and strenghts

A medication’s taste can sometimes be offensive to a child’s senses; it can be too salty, naturally bitter, or sour. 

In CC pharmacy , We have an armory of flavors to make even the most disagreeable medications tolerable and often enjoyable to take.

Children may also require a particular strength of a drug because of their age or weight .Some medications are commercially available in strengths that are not suitable for your child .

Don’t panic ! CC pharmacy is the answer as we can prepare various strengths

Unique Dosage Forms :

Sometimes Children are not able to swallow tablets or capsules until they reach a certain age.Some medications are commercially available in specific dosage forms that are not suitable for your child leaving you without options . That’s when it’s time for you and your physician to call CC pharmacy .

When the need arises, CC pharmacy and Pediatricians can work together to find alternative dosage forms for children.
This include:

lollipops, syrups, freezer pops, lozenges, gummis, even pacifiers and baby bottles for infants.
