Patient compliance with medication is a complex problem and can be especially challenging for pediatric populations. In fact, compliance rates in children are as low as 11%, with formulation and palatability shown to be major contributing factors.1

Patient acceptance of Zydis® formulations is especially high in pediatric populations, demonstrated by 50% of medications currently formulated in Zydis® Orally Disintegrating Tablets (ODT) being specifically indicated for use with children.
