Children and Medicine: A Special Challenge
Children can present several challenges when it comes to taking their medications. Some children may resist taking a liquid medicine due to its taste, others may have difficulty swallowing pills. Also, many children have a fear of injections, leads to different problems altogether.
Also, many medications aren’t labeled for children. If a medicine isn’t approved for use in infants and children, it typically isn’t available in suitable pediatric dosage forms.
