PEDIATRICS

We will work with you to customize medications that meet the specific needs of your patients.
We understand the special challenges that pediatricians face in prescribing medication for children in an environment where drugs are not developed or labeled with children in mind. Medications that are not approved for use by infants and children are mostly not available in a form suitable for children to use. This is a particular challenge since your young patients are most likely to resist taking medication with a taste or texture that is unpalatable or that is difficult for them to swallow, and their fear of injections makes this an uncomfortable alternative for them.
