Our most popular product is our FLAVORx pediatric kit which offers you a full line of flavors that can be used with thousands of liquid medications – from everyday Amoxicillin and Augmentin, to the more specialized drugs you dispense to treat less common conditions. For over 20 years, we’ve been perfecting the art and science of custom flavored liquid medicine, so that your valuable patients can choose their taste!
Safety and efficacy are of the utmost importance to us, which is why we test our flavors to make sure they do not affect the medicine in any way or change the medications shelf life. All FLAVORx flavors are sugar-free, dye-free, gluten-free, and casein-free. Over 50 million prescriptions have been custom-flavored with FLAVORx. Your endorsement of the flavoring service is a surefire way to improve compliance when taste is an issue.
HOW FLAVORx WORKS
FLAVORx flavors are able to mask the existing taste of medications. By using one of our existing recipes that have been specifically formulated for every unique medication, a pharmacist or pharmacy tech can change the taste of any liquid medication. Even if the existing taste of the medication isn’t bad many times you will find a child preferring a different flavor because not all child’s favorite flavor is cherry or bubblegum. Most parents will be surprised to learn that when they custom flavor their child’s medication, their children are more compliant to take the prescription.
WHY OFFER FLAVORING
There are many reasons why a pharmacy should invest in the FLAVORx kit but one of the most important reasons is medicine adherence. Pediatric adherence rates typically hover around 60%. When medications are custom flavored, those rates can increase to 90% or higher. Regardless of the acute or chronic nature of an illness, it is very important for a child to complete the recommended amount of medication prescribed to them. By offering a family this solution, your pharmacy will leave a lasting impression because you made medicine-time so much easier!
