To respond to the needs of patients who face difficulty swallowing or children who refuse to take tablets, doctors prescribe suspensions.
Studies show that around 35% of the general population and 18-22% of all patients in long-term care facilities face difficulties swallowing tablets. Whether because of the taste, texture or general discomfort, people don’t like pills. But this is only a fraction of the picture. Other studies indicate that 85% of children are likely to refuse medicine if it tastes unpleasant.
However liquid suspensions have many drawbacks
BITs solve these problems.
A flexible delivery system adjusted to patients needs
Our twist-off soft gelatine capsules, BITs, offer patients the most flexibility. Patients who face difficulty swallowing can simply twist off the tail, squeeze the content onto some food or directly into their mouth. The shell can then be discarded. Alternatively, they can chew it to enjoy the flavoured medicine. BITs can be swallowed too as long as you are not one of the 35%. This means that BITs can be taken by anybody anywhere regardless of their age, medical condition, personal consumption preferences or access to water. The Result? Patients are more compliant which makes the therapy more effective.
BITs are notable for delivering consistency, flexibility and a faster onset of action
It improve patients’ compliance by delivering dosage precision and giving patients the choice when it comes to how they can take their medicine. Moreover, the liquid formula inside each capsule and the buccal absorption lead to faster onset of action.
