Flavoring

Chat with Pharmacy Staff

Question

Is there any way to improve the flavor of my toddler's liquid antibiotic?

Answer

Walgreens offers a service called FLAVORx to enhance the flavor of some liquid medications, including certain antibiotics such as Augmentin® (amoxicillin/clavulanate) suspension. FLAVORx is approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Talk to your pharmacist about adding a flavor next time you are filling a liquid prescription. (Some adults may prefer a flavored liquid medication, too!)
