Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is a developmental disorder characterized by communication challenges, rigid and repetitive behaviors, and social interaction difficulties. Autism is a multi-spectrum disorder with a variety of symptoms that can differ from one person to another and to varying degrees.

Who benefits from autism compounding?

People with Autism typically experience distinct psychological and/or physical challenges that can be aggravated by ingredients found in food and medicine. For example, sugars, gluten, casein, dyes, soy, heavy metals (i.e. aluminum), and carbohydrates can aggravate symptoms of autism. Also, people with autism are typically very sensitive to textures and tastes. Swallowing pills may be difficult for them to do and picky eaters may refuse to take their medication due to its taste. At Sunshine Pharmacy, we can compound medications into alternate forms and with delicious flavors to suit each person’s preferences.
