Children pose many challenges when it comes to medication; they may resist taking medication, dislike the taste or texture, have difficulty swallowing solid dosage forms, and are fearful of injections. Chiron can help with these medication challenges. Palatable formulations are more likely to improve compliance and minimize spillage or waste during administration.
At Chiron we aim to reduce the stress often involved in administering medication to a child, as well as to make taking medication easier for the child.
The easiest way to customize a medication is by flavouring! Flavouring turns yucky-tasting prescriptions into medication that kids like. Chiron has access to many flavour combinations which can enhance the taste and colour of medications to make them easier to swallow.
Possible Dosage Forms:
Suspensions (aqueous, syrup, oil)
Oral adhesive gel or bandage
We work together with prescribers, children, and their families to customize medications and meet specific needs!
