Novel Oral Dosage Forms : Granules, Sprays & Sachets

GRANULES
 
Orally disintegrating granules (ODG) score highly in regard to ‘opening the packaging’ and ‘integration into everyday routine’.


They are already available for allergy and pain relief. In addition to those ODGs suitable for adults, singular paediatric 4mg granules are suitable for children aged 6 months to 5 years. The granules can either be given directly into a child's mouth, or mixed with a spoonful of cold or room-temperature soft food (eg apple sauce, ice cream, carrots or rice). They can be taken either with or without food, increasing their popularity from those looking for easy administration.
