Taking the "Yuk" Out of Pediatric Medicine
(What you need to know)
Common Scenario: Your child is sick. You take your child to the doctor. The doctor prescribes a medicine. You get home and your child refuses to take the medicine. Sound familiar? Let’s face it - kids struggle swallowing many of today’s medications. And can you blame them?
There is a solution. Boudreaux’s is a special kind of pharmacy - a compounding pharmacy. We prepare customized medications on-site, so you don’t have to rely on prepackaged medicines to treat your child. At Boudreaux’s, your child gets the dose of medicine she needs in a form she can swallow.
For children who have difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules, we often make the same drug in an oral suspension, a liquid. But even then, if the drug has a horrible taste, the child isn’t likely to take it. With over 100 flavorings, including tutti-frutti, cotton candy, banana cream and strawberry, we’re sure to find a combination your child likes. Your child may even ask for more!
In addition to the medicine’s form and taste, the child may be sensitive to certain fillers or preservatives in the drug. As a compounding pharmacy, Boudreaux’s can remove those problem ingredients, making it even easier for the child to follow the prescription.
In addition to oral suspensions, Boudreaux’s also makes topical gels for nausea and vomiting, lollipops for sore throats, and balms and creams for diaper rash. Each of these requires a prescription, so be sure your doctor knows about these options.
