Abstract:  Medications on the market for the treatment of arthritis are more commonly appropriate for adult arthritic patients. However, for patients with juvenile arthritis, a compounding pharmacist can prepare specialized medications for those patients who are in need of a specific dosage, or for those patients who require a different dosage form. Additionally, more than one active ingredient can be combined in pharmacy compounding to meet a specific patient’s needs. Compounded topical/transdermal preparations can provide customized medication options, which may not be commercially available, for pediatric patients with juvenile arthritis.
