Liquitard® provides an effective and convenient dosage form for patients who have difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules, as is often the case with pediatric and geriatric patients. In addition to a wide range of flavors, Liquitard® can be mixed with or sprinkled on easy-to-swallow foods to further improve convenience of administration.
How Liquitard® Technology works
This technology is formulated to create extemporaneous suspensions that facilitate the administration of drug particles (crystal, granulate, or liquid) that can be filled into a single-dose stick pack (sachet). When poured into water, coated drug particles and additional excipients (ie, suspending agents, flavors, sweeteners) produce a ready-to-use suspension. This unique technology can be combined with Microcaps® technology, incorporating the benefits of taste masking.
