Abstract

Present day’s conventional pediatrics doses forms are not very attractive towards the children.

Due to various reasons such as larger size, bitter taste etc. pediatrics patients rejects the present conventional doses form in many cases. So there is need for the development of some unconventional dosage forms that proves to be attractive towards the paediatrics populations. This review provides possible advantages and disadvantages of the present conventional dosage forms available for children.
