It's never fun forcing a sick child to take medicine they don't like. Children can be very particular about what they will and will not take. Sometimes medications are only sold in capsule form which children have difficulty swallowing.
Edwards Pharmacy offers a wide range of solutions to make medicine-taking more pleasant. These include the addition of a variety of flavors and using attractive and easy dosage forms your child is sure to enjoy including lollipops, rapid dissolve tablets and lozenges.
Allergies and sensitivities
Your child may have an allergy or sensitivity to some of the ingredients contained in commercial treatments. These include gluten, dyes, casein and soy. Some parents desire that these substances be removed along with additives, preservatives, alcohol and sugar. We can compound medications that are better for your child's health and perfectly suited to their individual needs.
Some medications are available in dosages which are too high for children to take. In some cases, e.g, the care of premature babies, special dosages may be required. Edwards Pharmacy can be trusted to compound accurate dosage forms for your child when needed.
