Abstract:  More than 80% of prescription drugs approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for human use are not approved for use in the pediatric population. When there is not a commercially available dosage form for pediatric use, it is the pharmacist’s responsibility to compound a stable and acceptable formula in accordance with good pharmacy practices, official standards and relevant scientific data. The author discusses the stability of formulations; factors affecting stability; types of oral liquids; beyond-use dating; flavors, taste and coloring; issues for administration of medications to children and stability studies (information sources, the pharmacist and the literature and US Food and Drug Administration updates).
