One out of 88 children in the US, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Leading experts in compounded medication can cater to the needs of sensitive patients by formulating custom prescriptions that don’t contain gluten, yeast, dye, casein, or sugar.
These compounded medications can be provided as transdermal creams, capsules, suppositories, and suspensions. Highly trained pharmacists will work with your child, you, and your child’s physician closely to understand all needs and formulate the medication, whether it is an antibiotic, chelation agent, or antifungal.

Benefits of Working with a Compounder
Compounding pharmacists are helpful in treating patients with sensitivities and dietary restrictions. They can make custom dosage for patients to meet their individual taste and texture preferences. This is done while keeping their specific needs and restrictions in mind. For instance, several patients cannot tolerate casein and gluten.
Compounders can help patients by creating unique dosage forms that avoid offensive taste. These are a few other benefits of working with compounding pharmacists:
