Compounding is most useful with children because commercially manufactured drugs are often not the best solution for kids.
There are several ways we can help children:
- We can reduce the strength of an adult medication.
- We can flavor the medication
- We can change a regular medication that is only available in an oral form into a suppository - even antibiotics. This is good for children that refuse to take medication or are orally compromised. For example, a seizure patient will not have the ability to swallow if they have gone into a fit; the suppositories are perfect for these circumstances. The drug will be absorbed quickly and be more effective.
- We can also place medications into lollipops, lozenges, suspensions, and freezer pops.
