Pediatric patients present a unique set of challenges when it comes to medication. Most medications are not designed to be taken by children or can cause unpleasant adverse effects. Compounding provides alternative means to help treat challenging pediatric conditions, such as autism, infections and pain, as well as making available dosage forms that are designed to meet the needs of a child. This lecture will cover alternatives to conventional medicine that are available through compounding for many different conditions, including autism, respiratory disorders, bacterial and fungal infections, skin conditions, nausea and vomiting and pain. Learn about some of the options available for your pediatric patients from a compounding perspective.
