It is no secret that most kiddos don’t love taking medicine. For some kids, the treatments can be worse than being sick… but we at Peninsula Compounding believe that it doesn’t have to be so hard. We have plenty of tricks up our sleeve to ensure that taking medicine is as pain-free as possible for your little ones. This means less stress for you.

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 working closely with a caring pediatrician can 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 your little one.
Don’t be Afraid to Ask!

Together you and your prescribing clinician can address the options and decide the best course for you.
