Compounding

For

Autism

Consider the stress associated with giving your child medication. It can be quite the daunting task. Our pharmacist understands how difficult it can be for children to swallow a pill or capsule and is here to help. Your stress will be alleviated with compounding for autism. Our pharmacist compounds traditional medications into:

 

  • An oral suspension (liquid, similar to cough syrup)

  • Gummy bears (compounded with stevia instead of sugar)

  • A transdermal gel (medication can be rubbed into and absorbed through the skin)

  • Medicated lollipops (assorted flavors)

 

Children with autism have unique and specific medication needs. Compounding allows medication to be created without allergens like gluten or lactose. The GI upset experienced by many autistic children is related to allergens present in commercially available pharmaceuticals. The ability to eliminate the allergen greatly decreases the GI complications in your child and relieves you of  unnecessary worry. Just think how much easier it would be to offer your child a delicious, easy-to-swallow, medicated treat rather than the dreaded “medicine.” As a result of switching to compounded medication, you can rest assured that your child will receive his or her dose on time, and the stress you had will be no more.

Our expert team will work with you, your child’s clinician and your child to make certain medications are easy to administer. We will also ensure the medication method is right and works well with your child. 

 

Call or email us today to learn how to get started. You never know, with our compounded medication, your child might actually start asking for his or her medicine! Now, wouldn’t that be quite the relief?
