Compounding for Taste-Masking Children’s Medicine


The taste of medicine can be a real turnoff for children, and it makes them less likely to take their medicine. But what if you could mask the taste?

Mixing different flavors is one way to do that, but it’s not always possible. For example, if your child’s doctor prescribed an antibiotic for an infection and told you to give it twice a day for 10 days, adding a fruit flavor to the blend might not be an option.

Another way to make medicine more palatable is by compounding. Compounding is the process of combining numerous ingredients into one capsule or liquid form that patients can take orally. This allows a pharmacist or compounding chemist to mix several ingredients at once, so they don’t have to prescribe them separately and wait until they’re all ready before giving them to the patients.

Compounding services also help with taste-masking by allowing prescribers to add flavorings like chocolate or strawberry milk powder into their mixes—so that when patients take their meds, they won’t even notice there’s medicine involved.
