Dietary adjustments are a common method of controlling the symptoms of autism with many parents helping their children to avoid gluten, casein, and other ingredients that can cause problems. However, gluten is present in many medications and casein is found in several probiotics. When your physician works with our pharmacist, we can prepare medications free of troublesome ingredients that still provide the best possible treatment to address your child’s specific needs.
In addition, to ensure the integrity of the ingredients in your child’s medication, North Fulton Compounding Pharmacy can create medications in a form that will improve your child’s compliance. We know that it is tough at the best of times to get a child to swallow pills or bitter, unpleasant liquids. When you are caring for a child living with autism, this challenge can be even more burdensome. When your pediatrician works with our pharmacist, medications can be made in much more palatable forms including flavored syrups, gummies or lollipops. Our pharmacist can also work with your doctor to ensure that any other special needs or circumstances are catered for including food or medication allergies.
