It is no secret that the youngest patients have the hardest time taking medicine.

Strength and Ingredient Variations
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. As a result, can be a challenge to find a commercially available medication suitable for your child’s individual needs. A compounding pharmacist can work with you to formulate a medication which meets all the child’s requirements.
Everything They Need, Nothing They Don’t
Many of the flavors we offer at Peninsula Compounding are sugar-free and some are even dye-free – this can often help children who are sensitive or allergic. This is just one of the many benefits of custom compounded medications for pediatric patients.
