Pediatric Solutions





Finding a better way to give your child medication!


Many parents can attest to the fact that giving their child medication can be a challenging task for various reasons. It’s no secret that most kids don’t like taking medicine. Many children can have a difficult time swallowing tablets/capsules or simply they do not enjoy the taste of the medicine making it an un-pleasurable experience.

The commercial market provides limited options for most medications and often are only available in specific dosage forms. Your options no longer have to be limited. At the Leamington Wellness Pharmacy, we offer solutions in a variety of flavouring, individualized strengths and dosage forms through the art of custom compounding. Each child is unique and has different needs based on age, size, dietary restriction or allergies. We are here to help because we understand your child deserves a stress-free experience.





Working closely with the Leamington Wellness Pharmacy, your child’s pediatrician can prescribe medications for:

  • Pain relief

  • Respiratory disorders

  • Oral thrush

  • Diabetes

  • Head lice

  • Diaper rash

  • Skin disorders

  • Cold sores/fever blisters


Flavouring your child’s medication:

Many children refuse medication because of the texture or colour, or simply because they know it is medicine. The child who refuses to take his or her medicine because of the taste is a prime candidate for compounded medication.


We can transform a medication into a pleasantly favoured dosage form, which are dispensed in childproof packaging. Dozens of enticing flavours are available to enhance the taste and color of a medication without changing the medication’s effectiveness. Now, your child can enjoy the taste of bubble-gum or even banana flavour.



Some Common flavours include:


  • Banana
  • Strawberry
  • Spearmint
  • Chocolate
  • Marshmallow
  • Tangerine
  • Cinnamon
  • Grape
  • Raspberry
  • Apple
  • Vanilla
  • Butterscotch
  • Tutti-Frutti
  • Bubble-gum
  • Lemon
  • Mint Chocolate and more

Unique Dosage Forms:
Many children have a very difficult time swallowing capsules or tablets, especially if they have to take more than one medication during the day. To solve this problem, your pediatrician and compounding pharmacist can develop and prepare medications in alternate dosage forms your child won’t mind taking. 

These include:

  • Oral liquids

  • Lollipops

  • Gummy treats

  • Suspensions

  • Topical gels

  • Effervescent drinks

  • Lozenges and more

Some compounded medications can be administered using special pacifiers or bottles for infants – and most can be administered in any number of great flavours.

Strength and Ingredient Variations:
Each child is unique. Children differ in size and individual needs. Some have allergies and varying drug tolerances, requiring medications which are sugar-freegluten-freecasein-freesoy-free, or dye-free. As a result, can be a challenge to find a commercially available medication suitable for your child’s individual needs.
