Colic is an umbrella term used to describe gastrointestinal discomfort symptoms in infants.
Children with colic often cry during feeding times and seem to suffer from excessive bloating or gas. While colic symptoms will often resolve themselves, some children suffer from this condition for an extended period of time and require medical treatment.
If it sounds like your child might have this condition, give Compounding Chemist Ipswich a call and ask for information about our 'colic drops' which were formulated and developed by our pharmacists in conjunction with a well-known local paediatrician.
Omeprazole belongs to a group of drugs called PPIs or proton-pump inhibitors. This medication, frequently used by adults to treat symptoms of reflux disease, is also used to treat the same condition in infants.
Young children, for a number of reasons, can be prone to reflux at different stages in their development, often leading to regurgitation and painful sensations which can make feeding difficult.
In order to address this issue, our pharmacists regularly compound palatable omeprazole suspensions which are specifically made for each patient. By adjusting the concentration based on a child's dose, you can avoid having to struggle with a large amount of liquid for each dose- simplifying your life and your child's.
Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in the brain which helps regulate the sleep and wake cycle. It is commonly used to treat insomnia and jetlag in adults as well as having a broad range of uses in improving sleep in children. In children with autism-spectrum disorder (ASD), melatonin has been found to be effective for sleeplessness in a number of trials. This, in conjunction with its high safety profile and relatively low incidence of side-effects has led to it being a relatively common prescription amongst this patient group.
