The FLAVORx Pediatric System is used in over 35,000 pharmacies globally to customize the flavor of prescription and over-the-counter medicines. With our special Bitterness Suppressor, Sweetening Enhancer and a blend of natural and artificial flavors, Pharmacists add a little fun to the process of getting better while masking the unpleasant taste that normally discourages you or your child from taking medicine.

One important thing to keep in mind. While our child-approved flavors will help the medicine go down, there’s no mistaking them for candy. That means you’ll have peace of mind knowing your child will still understand the difference between better-tasting FLAVORx-enhanced medicines and real sweet treats.

Available Flavors

What do snowflakes and tongues have in common? For starters, they’re both kinda wet. But more importantly, no two are alike. Everyone has a different sense of taste and we all know what flavors we like the most. This is especially true with kids, whose sense of taste is pretty sensitive. That’s the beauty of FLAVORx. The pharmacist can custom-flavor liquid medications to a child’s favorite flavor. Here’s a list of great-tasting flavors that are available at our participating FLAVORx pharmacies.
