Kids and Medicine: A Special Challenge

Parents know that children can present several challenges when it comes to taking their medications. Some children may resist taking a liquid medicine due its taste. Some have difficulty swallowing pills. And many children have a fear of injections.
Also, many medications aren't labeled for children. If a medicine isn't approved for use in infants and children, it usually isn't available in a suitable pediatric dosage form.
