Pain Management

At Marco Drugs & Compounding, we will help you find the solution to pain management that fits your patients’ needs.

With such customized medication, patients can avoid side effects that are associated with oral administration.

We work with patients and practitioners to solve problems by customizing medications that meet the specific needs of each individual. Please contact our compounding pharmacist to discuss the dosage form, strength, and medication or combination of medications that are most appropriate for your situation.

Pediatrics

Children pose many challenges when it comes to medication: they often resist taking the medication because they dislike the taste or texture, have difficulty swallowing solid dosage forms, or are fearful of injections.

Compounding allows pediatricians to bypass these challenges. At Marco Drugs & Compounding, we can compound oral medications into flavors and dosage forms that encourage children to take them. For example: we can make most oral antibiotics into rectal suppositories, Topical Treatment for diaper rash, we also we have created medications in the form of Fast Dissolving Tablets, suspensions, solutions, concentrates, freezer pops, gummy bears, and lozenges, all in colors and flavors that improve compliance.
