Background: The lack of commercially available oral liquid dosage forms presents a challenge to the pharmacist to compound oral liquids or alternatively, provide advice on crushed, solid dosage forms in liquid media to patients unable to swallow in many practice settings.Aims: Despite this common practice, there is little available stability data.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
