Columbia - It’s a fact of life. Most children don’t like taking medicine because of how bad it tastes or because it has a flavor they just don’t like. With FLAVORx, pharmacists are able to customize the taste of children’s liquid medicine to his or her favorite flavor. The FLAVORx app lets a person see what the best taste options are specifically for children’s medication and quickly locate a nearby pharmacy that offers the FLAVORx service.
Studies show that 7 out of 10 parents struggle during medicine-time, a large factor of that struggle is due to the children not liking the taste of the medication. With FLAVORx products a pharmacist is able to customize the taste of a child’s medication to his or her favorite flavor. By downloading the FLAVORx app a user will be able to:
- Find a medication from the comprehensive list of liquid prescriptions and OTC medications
