Pediatric Compounding Pharmacy
Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy meets the needs of parents and pediatricians.
When it comes to medicating your child, sometimes the commercially available manufactured product is not in a flavor, strength or dosage form that your child can take. Pavilion’s, specially trained formulation pharmacists, can suggest alternative methods of drug delivery, designed to assist in getting medication into your child. We can, in many cases, formulate medications to be applied thru the skin, offering painless, effective drug delivery. For those parents working with Autism Spectrum Disorders, both taste, feel, and ease of delivery are important considerations to consider. We can help with sensory issues related to drug delivery.
Our expertise includes lollipops, transdermal creams, oral suspensions with individualized flavor options, ear drops, nose drops, nose sprays, oral sprays for numbing mouth pain. We also formulate many topical creams, gels, spray gels, ointments for skin disorders.
Some commonly requested formulations include:
- Gastrointestinal: Lansoprazole, omeprazole, metronidazole, calcium carbonate/magnesium suspension
- Ears/nose/throat: Benzocaine/antipyrine ear drop, lidocaine throat spray, magic mouthwash
- Diaper rash: sucralfate paste, zinc oxide paste
- Eczema, Psoriasis: cyanocobalamin/primrose oil in Xematop
- Fever/pain: ibuprofen, acetaminophen lollipop or suppository
- Nausea/vomiting: Ondansetron, ginger root, promethazine
When your doctor prescribes Flagyl®, metronidazole, oral medication we can compound this with a unique type of metronidazole, with a much better taste profile versus crushing up the commercial tablets. This can also be flavored to your child’s taste preferences.
Another common compound is lansoprazole or Prevacid®,and omeprazole or Prilosec®, used for gastric distress, and we can compound and customize a flavor profile unique to your child. As a suspension, we see fantastic results on our formulation.
Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy has invested in highly trained staff, equipment, and customer service specialists to quickly serve your family’s needs. We have state of the art equipment to enhance mixing and assist our pharmacist to provide a compound quickly and safely.
