Oral Liquid Dosages
Better drug design and delivery options will help improve the chances that patients will willingly take their medications as prescribed. Dow provides thickeners, stabilizers, binders, film-formers and products that help with water retention for a broad range of oral liquid dosage forms.
Solutions for Oral Liquid Dosages
METHOCEL™ water-soluble cellulose ethers can be used in liquid suspensions for drug stabilization.
CARBOWAX™ SENTRY™ PEGs
CARBOWAX™ SENTRY™ PEGs are ingredients in liquid oral-dose medications such as cough medicines and elixirs, where they function as solubilizers and non-alcohol diluents. They can also be used in nose and ear drops and spray-on medicines.
AMBERLITE™ Ion Exchange Resins
Ion exchange functional excipients such as AMBERLITE™ offer a unique solution to control the release of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and improve drug stabilization in liquid suspensions. The ion exchange resins can be used in combination with other excipients to provide targeted drug release profiles. Furthermore, AMBERLITE™ prevents bitter active ingredients from releasing in the mouth, which leads to better patient compliance.
DUOLITE™ Ion Exchange Resins
DUOLITE™ ion exchange resins prevent bitter active ingredients from releasing in the mouth, which leads to better patient compliance.
WALOCEL™ C Polymers
WALOCEL™ C polymers can control the rheological (flow) properties in a variety of liquid dosage forms. Whenever viscosity control, suspension stabilization, water absorption or water retention is required, WALOCEL™ C is an excellent choice.
