Compounded pediatric medications from San Jose Compounding Pharmacy can be effective for infants and children. Children pose many challenges when it comes to taking medication, they may resist, dislike the taste and/or texture, difficulty swallowing, and fearful of injections. Their ability to take a medication will be easier by adding a drug into a flavored suspension, this allows the taste to be more like a treat for kids.
