Absolutely! In fact, quite often children and elderly patients are the ideal patients for compounded medications. Flavoring agents can greatly assist in the taste of a medication, which makes giving a child a medication much easier and increases compliance. We can match the medication properties, and patient flavor preference. We work with the physician directly to make the healing process a much more pleasant experience. Bubblegum, banana, grape and vanilla are some of the flavoring we can provide.
Elderly patients can benefit from compounding services. Our compounding pharmacist may help relieve side effects by providing an alternate delivery vehicle of a medication with a physician’s prescription.
