Content uniformity of quartered hydrocortisone tablets in comparison with mini-tablets for paediatric dosing.

Summary of "Content uniformity of quartered hydrocortisone tablets in comparison with mini-tablets for paediatric dosing."

Children requiring cortisol replacement therapy are often prescribed hydrocortisone doses of 2.5 mg, but as this is commercially unavailable 10 mg tablets, with functional break lines, are split commonly in an attempt to deliver the correct dose. This study aimed to determine the dose variation obtained from quartered hydrocortisone tablets when different operators performed the splitting procedure and to ascertain whether better uniformity could be attained from mini-tablets as an alternative formulation.
