FLAVORx® flavors are able to mask the existing taste of medications of any liquid medication. Even if the existing taste of the medication isn’t bad, often we find a child whose favorite flavor is something different from cherry or bubblegum. Most parents will be surprised to learn that when they custom flavor their child’s medication, their child is more compliant to take the prescription.
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 flavoring solution, we hope to make medicine-time much easier!
