Omeprazole in a liquid format has long been an unsatisfied need in patients with swallowing issues, previously having only been available as an unlicensed special. Licensed tablets and capsules can also present problems for patients with swallowing difficulties, patients with PEG/NG tubes and infants requiring treatment for GORD.
Rosemont omeprazole powder for oral suspension is the result of extensive research and development, it is a major advance in formulation with an innovative new format, overcoming some of the obstacles of the previously available options. Omeprazole powder for oral suspension has been developed in an innovative and patented format that makes constitution easy. It avoids the limitations of enteric coated pellets and has a pre-constitution shelf life of 2 years. The product negates the need to crush tablets, open capsules or order specials. To meet the needs of all patient groups it is available in both 2mg/ml & 4mg/ml strengths and is licensed for use with PEG & NG tubes.
This development is a significant step forward in meeting the special needs of infants with gastrooesophageal reflux disease. It is the only PPI formulation licensed for babies from 1 month and the only liquid PPI with mg/kg dosing, allowing for dose titration below 10mg. Through extensive testing we have also proven the 2mg/ml product to be effective in short, narrow bore NG tubes with only a 2ml flush volume. All ingredients have been carefully selected with no ethanol, sugar or propylene glycol. Our 2mg strength also includes a natural vanilla flavour to improve palatability for infants.
Rosemont, making a happy difference to professionals and patients.
