What are Liquid Medicines?

Significant advances in medicine have helped us to lead longer and healthier lives, yet most medicines continue to be produced in a solid form that can be difficult to swallow. Whatever your reason for seeking liquid medication, at Rosemont Pharmaceuticals we create liquid medicines for anyone that has difficulty swallowing tablets.

Often patients with Dysphagia use solid medication, even when it is painful for them. We are dedicated to the development of syrup medicines that help ease any unnecessary pain or anxiety. There are so many liquid medicines available, you no longer need to waste time crushing tablets, wincing at the sour taste. Crushing tablets can also lead to accidental overdose, potentially breaking down medication that is intended for slow release. Our fluid medication offers a comfortable and safe solution that is easy to digest, helping patients avoid the discomfort of swallowing tablets.

Should I take Liquid Medicine?

If you are affected by any of the following conditions, then consider asking your doctor, or pharmacist for a liquid medicine alternative:

  • It’s physically difficult or uncomfortable for me to swallow tablets
  • It’s physically painful for me to swallow tablets
  • I can’t face swallowing tablets
  • I often break, or crush tablets so I can swallow them
  • I have to mix my tablet with food or drink to swallow them
  • I have to chew my tablets

 

Swallowing disorders are common in patients with a disability or learning difficulties, there are also a variety of oral conditions such as acid reflux that can cause Dysphagia. Parents also enjoy the benefits of liquid medicine, finding it easier to administer to their children and often seek out baby medicine in liquid form. Caregivers also prefer to administer liquid medication to the elderly and infirm.

There are a range of liquid medicines available that can help with infections and conditions such as obstetrics, gynaecology and urinary-tract disorders and musculoskeletal and joint disease.

We have over 150 liquid medicines and help healthcare professionals deliver the best possible care for their patients by providing them with the relevant information including our latest article on the symptoms of swallowing difficulties.
