We know it's a tough job being a parent, and caring for a sick child is just one of the many difficulties you face. It’s no secret that most kids don’t like taking medicine and to make matters worse, many medications are not commonly available in appropriate dosage forms, strengths, or flavors to suit the needs of children. At ScriptWorks, we customize pediatric medicines for respiratory disorders, pain relief, oral thrush, diabetes, head lice, skin disorders, diaper rash, nausea, cold sores, and much more. We'll work with you and your doctor to formulate medicines that will meet the ever-changing needs of your child.
For the Kids
Your Unique Needs
Each child is unique. Children differ in size and individual needs. Some have allergies and varying drug tolerances, requiring medications which are sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, soy-free, or dye-free.
The best part is that can even enhance medicine by adding both flavor and color. We have well over 50 flavors to choose from, including cherry, blackberry, raspberry, strawberry, watermelon, grape, banana, root beer, bubble gum, chocolate, and blueberry. There is a flavor for every child's taste!
The End Result
With pediatric compounding you get a doctor who is confident of therapeutic success, a parent who is happy their child is getting the medication they need, and a child who is more willing to take their medicine in a form or flavor that they enjoy.
