Children often resist taking a medication because of its taste or texture, its injection form, or its solid dosage form that can be difficult to swallow. Fortunately, our team can help with this!

We can compound oral medications into flavored suspensions, solutions, concentrates, freezer pops, “gummy bears,” or lozenges. These can also come in colors that children love and are attracted to! 

We can also compound most drugs into transdermal gels that you can apply to an appropriate site, such as your child’s wrist, for the gel to absorb through the skin.

Compounded medications include (but are not limited to):

  • benzocaine, lidocaine, and tetracaine (BLT) topical gel or spray
  • cholestyramine ointment
  • clotrimazole in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) solution
  • fluconazole/ibuprofen topical
  • ivermectin topical
  • potassium hydroxide (KOH) solution (5% and 10%)
  • nicotinamide/spironolactone topical
  • promethazine transdermal gel
  • urea (40%) plasters
