Compounding Options

Pediatrics

Pediatrics - Acid Reflux (GERD)
A child with acid reflux (GERD) is in a chronic state of discomfort every time he/she eats, becoming wary of swallowing anything. Medication is necessary to reduce acid and reflux action, to promote nutrition, growth and wellbeing.
 
Snell's Pharmacy can help overcome the challenge of medicating a child with acid reflux by preparing oral suspensions mixed with flavorings. The suspensions are custom-dosed and flavored based on the child's weight, symptoms and taste preference. Medications may include proton pump inhibitors Lansoprazole, Omeprazole and Pantoprazole.
 
Talk to your medical provider to discuss compounding as a treatment option. Or contact us to inquire about potential treatment strategies and cost.
 
Pediatrics - Celiac Disease
Celiac disease is a lifelong allergy to gluten in food products that causes an immuno-toxic reaction, damaging the small intestines. Food is not properly absorbed, causing additional health and growth problems. Some medications may contain glutens as a suspending agent.
 
We can compound medications with the necessary ingredients, and substitute methycellulose or dark chocolate instead of gluten. Furthermore, we can add flavorings such as cherry to make the medication more agreeable for the child.

Pediatrics - General Pediatric Care

Snell's Pharmacy can customize preparations for children's health which may improve therapeutic outcomes and reduce side effects. We can help make taking medicine a bit more pleasant by adding agreeable flavorings and alternatives to hard-to-swallow pills.

Compounding medications for such diseases allows for
  • unique delivery vehicles to be used (i.e. topical cream, scalp lotion, nail lacquer); which makes administering the medication easier and more pleasant
  • medicines based on individual need as prescribed by a physician
  • multiple medications sometimes can be combined

Contact us. We will be happy to discuss treatment options with you or your doctor.

 
Pediatrics - Nausea/Vomiting
Caring for your child can become especially frustrating when the child is nauseated or vomiting.
 
At Snell's Pharmacy, we can make special preparations, called transdermal gels, that can be applied to the skin which may relieve these symptoms. We custom make your child's prescription based on weight, symptoms and preferences. There are several medications which can be applied topically, including Ondansetron, Promethazine and Prochlorperazine.
