Making It Easier for Patients to Take the Medicines They Need
The age at which children master swallowing tablets or pills can vary, and swallowing difficulty is a multifactorial issue that can occur at any age.2
Studies estimate that 50% to 88% of children taking prescription medication are not adherent at some point.3 Nonadherence, in turn, is associated with increased complications, morbidity, poorer quality of life, and increased use of healthcare resources.4
Patients who take medicine as prescribed have better outcomes and lower costs of care.3
Multiple studies of children and teens under care for a variety of conditions have shown that sweet-tasting and easy-to-swallow formulations can make the difference between treatment success and failure.2,4

Why Risk the Variability and Inconvenience of
Compounding, Crushing, and Sprinkling?
FDA-approved prescription medicines such as Katerzia have been shown to have fewer quality issues and less variability in potency than similar compounded formulations. Manufacturing under current Good Manufacturing Practices helps to ensure uniform taste, concentration, and consistency from fill to fill and pharmacist to pharmacist.6
Oral liquid formulations like Katerzia may make it easier to see that a patient has received the full prescribed dose of their medication.1,4,7
Finally, prescription drugs like Katerzia generally have broader coverage with fewer restrictions compared with specialty compounded formulas,8 so patients are less likely to encounter surprise costs or objections.
