Aventura, FL – October 16, 2017
Both pediatric and geriatric patients present with similar concerns regarding medication intake, most notably, difficulty in swallowing a tablet or capsule, or the requirement for a lower dosage strength than is commercially available. Such a challenge places compounding in high demand as a means to achieve alternate dosage strengths and dosage forms in order to meet the unique needs of this patient population. The most common dosage form prescribed to pediatric and geriatric patients is an oral liquid, because they circumvent the challenges of swallowing a tablet or capsule and allow for flexible dosing. Alternatively, child-friendly dosage forms, such as gummies, offer a unique avenue that the compounding pharmacist can pursue.
- Riboflavin 100 mg Oral Gummy Gels
- Omeprazole 2 mg/mL Oral Liquid
- Amlodipine Besylate 1 mg/mL Oral Liquid
