The taste or flavor of pediatric medicine holds its importance as it influences adherence to therapeutic regimens and outcomes. Third-Party Manufacturing Pharma Companies define it as the general appreciation of medicine by organoleptic properties such as looks or appearance, smell, taste, aftertaste, and mouth feel. The taste was described as the greatest common testified block to oral medicines administration in a recent study on children with chronic diseases.
Reasons to opt for liquid oral
Medicines are the last thing that a child prefers to take even in illness. Oral dosage forms especially liquid orals are the most popular for the pediatric population. Oral dosage is comparatively preferred because these formulations are suitable for children who cannot swallow oral solid forms. Children generally face problems while having solid orals as they get choked or vomit which leaves the effect of the medication half-hearted. While giving the oral dosage, volume is the most considerate feature which needs to be considered for the appropriateness of liquid formulations.
Oral dosage form needs to be prepared with utmost care and vigilance. Small dosage quantity should hold the same effect on the symptoms of illness as it can be through solid orals. Along with accuracy, the taste, texture, and liquidity need to be maintained in a good ratio so that can be consumed easily by the kids. Even the demand is also high for oral dosage form which is very well catered by Contract Development manufacturing organizations (CDMO) pharma. CDMO Pharma proves to be a big help in maintaining the quality and efficiency of oral dosage forms by maintaining the manufacturing of sufficient quantity required in the market.
The huge widely held pediatric formulations are for oral direction. Researchers have proved and stated that most pediatric dosage forms are for oral administration. The widely held of these, are liquid dosage forms. Liquid formulations for oral administration can be solutions, suspensions, syrups, elixirs, and emulsions. Even studies reveal that medications that are pleasant in taste have a positive effect on compliance. Medicines that are liquid and fruity and sweet are the most preferred by children. It’s been seen that if s child is ill, then his taste and sensory perception get affected with which the solid orals are the last preference. They still prefer to take liquid orals having tangy or bitter tastes too. This is the reason why liquid orals are the most preferred among the pediatric population.
