Walmart Neighborhood Market pharmacies offer FlavoRx

BY Sandra Levy

Families who give antibiotics and other medications to their sick children now have a way to make the medicine easier to swallow. Walmart is offering FlavoRx with select liquid prescriptions for no additional cost at Neighborhood Market pharmacies.

Parents and caregivers can choose the flavor of medicine the child likes best — from grape, strawberry, mango or bubblegum.

“We know our customers face a lot of challenges during the day, and getting your child to swallow necessary medications shouldn’t be one of them. While we have previously offered FlavoRx at a nominal fee to parents, we are now offering it at no additional cost to take the guesswork out of convenience and continuing our mission of offering affordable health care,” Jay Picklesimer, senior director of Walmart Neighborhood Market Health & Wellness Operations, said in a statement.

According to FlavoRx, pediatric adherence rates of taking medication typically hover around 60%, and when medications are custom flavored, those rates can increase to 90% or higher.
