Pediatric Drug Delivery systems
Children differ from adults in aspects of pharmacotherapy, capabilities of drug administration, taste preferences. It is essential that pediatric medicines are formulated to best suit a child’s age, size, condition and treatment requirements. The pediatric formulation should be with flexible dosage and minimal excipients, palatable, safe and easy to administer. Mostly conventional drug delivery systems are not acceptable for pediatric patients as they differ in their developmental status and requirements from other population. Pediatric patients require different oral drug delivery.
