Abstract:  Most new drugs are not labeled for certain populations, such as infants and children; and “off-label” use of drugs is common in pediatric patients. In this article, the author introduces pediatricians to the services of compounding pharmacists. He discusses topical anesthetic combinations, laxative formulations, medications for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, antinausea medications, diaper-rash medications, acne medications and head -ice medications. He concludes that the compounding pharmacist must use innovative thinking to formulate pediatric titrations of adult medications and to flavor those titrations to make them more palatable for children.
