Pediatric Compounding

Working closely with a compounding pharmacist, your child’s pediatrician can prescribe medications for:

  • Pain relief
  • Respiratory disorders
  • Oral thrush
  • Diabetes
  • Head lice
  • Diaper rash
  • Skin disorders
  • Cold sores/fever blisters
  • And much more!

Unique Dosage Forms

Your pediatrician and compounding pharmacist can develop and prepare medications in alternate dosage forms your child won’t mind taking. These include:

  • Oral liquids
  • Lollipops
  • Gummy treats
  • Topical gels
  • Effervescent drinks
  • Special pacifiers or bottles for infants


What if your child’s medicine tasted better and could be taken without a fuss? A child who has difficulty taking a prescription because of the taste is a prime candidate. He or she won’t mind taking medication that tastes like bubblegum, watermelon, or even chocolate. Most PCCA flavors are sugar-free and some are even dye-free, which benefits patients who are sensitive or allergic.

Your child deserves individualized pediatric care. Ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist about compounded prescriptions for children.
