In a combined effort with Dr. Todd Ochs, Great Wall China Adoption and Children of All Nations is now able to provide you with prescriptions for four medications proven to be effective for families adopting internationally. Many pediatricians will not prescribe the follow medicines without meeting the child in person. However, due to professional experience with adopted children internationally, Dr. Ochs is able to prescribe the following medications for families who purchase this service:
- Elimite cream, for possible scabies.
- Gentamicin eye drops, for conjunctivitis or pink eye
- Nystatin cream, for diaper rash
- Zithromax (antibiotic)
Please note that this service is for the prescriptions only, not the actual filled medications. You will need to have the prescriptions filled at your pharmacy.
Dr. Ochs will also be on-call while your family is traveling. If for any reason, you need the advice or recommendation of a physician while traveling, Dr. Ochs is available to call.
