Custom Compound Pharmacy Meets Demand for Liquid Tamiflu – Parents No Longer Have to Wait to Fill Prescriptions

San Fransico, CA, November 29, 2009 --( Koshland Custom Compound Pharmacy announced today that it is meeting the demand for patients needing Liquid Tamiflu, particularly for the overwhelming number of children diagnosed with Swine Flu, commonly referred to as the H1N1 flu. Currently, Tamiflu suspension can only be obtained by compounding pharmacies, and the FDA has instructed physicians and patients needing the liquid form of Tamiflu to find a compounding pharmacy to fill the prescription. Tamiflu Suspension is a more palatable option for children who have difficulty swallowing pills and can have a custom flavor to meet the needs of the child. Liquid Tamiflu is commonly prescribed by physicians to treat H1N1 flu.

According to recent article in USA Today, Roche Labs won’t have Liquid Tamiflu available until sometime in December. The wait is over, Koshland Pharm, Custom Compounding Pharmacy has plenty on hand to meet the demands of parents all across the San Francisco bay area. Please contact your physician today to have your prescriptions filled. The pharmacy is conveniently located at 301 Folsom Street, Suite B, San Francisco, CA 94105.
