Compounded oral medications are intended to be taken into the body by the mouth for digestion or absorption.
Medication can be compounded into individually customized capsules, primarily in cases where an alternate strength is required or to omit potential allergens or irritants. To lessen the number of doses to be taken, multiple medications can often be combined into a single dosage or made into control release capsules.
For children who dislike the taste of some medicines, flavors of their choice can be added or some medications can even be delivered through flavored lollipops.
Lozenges are a popular dosage form used to keep drugs in the mouth when ‘local’ action is required orally. Troches are special “soft square and round-shaped tablets” that are made to dissolve in the buccal area of the mouth. This area between the gum and cheek or sublingual (directly under the tongue) allows the medication to enter the bloodstream quickly and easily. Lozenges and troches can be enhanced with natural sweeteners and pleasant tasting flavors such as peppermint, strawberry, raspberry and many more.
