Lake Mahopac Pharmacy Caters to Kids

The pharmacy will customize or compound prescriptions on site

Children’s health needs are best served by someone with the training and tools to address them. Nagi Wissa, owner of Lake Mahopac Pharmacy, says that while his pharmacy does everything a standard big-box store pharmacy does, it has a special section just for children’s products, including a wide selection of child-specific supplements and holistic remedies, as well as custom dosages and flavorings.

For example, it carries two brands of Omega 3 gummies, Vitafusion and Lil Critters, which deliver broad health benefits in a form that’s easy for kids to take. “Omega 3 is good for cognitive health, and has been found to be beneficial for kids with autism. It helps with behavior and concentration,” says Wissa, a registered pharmacist. It also carries Bio-Strath products, which are gluten-free, whole-food supplements providing a full spectrum of naturally occurring B vitamins, including B1, B2, B3 and B12.

The pharmacy will customize or compound prescriptions on site— a particularly helpful service for children’s medication, since dosages often need to be titered down for lower body weights—and it can convert a medication from pill to liquid form. “Some medications are not available in liquid, so we can make it into a liquid for kids to take, and add flavoring,” Wissa says.

Lake Mahopac Pharmacy works with all doctors and accepts Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans. The store is located at 559 Rte. 6, Mahopac, NY. For more info, call 845.208.0424 or visit LakeMahopacPharmacy.com.
