Avoid Mishaps With Sprinkle Caps
New Rx Ezallor Sprinkle (eh-ZAH-lor, rosuvastatin) will raise questions about handling orders for sprinkle capsules.
Sprinkle formulations contain pellets of medication inside of a capsule. Most sprinkle caps can be swallowed whole...or opened and sprinkled over soft food or into a feeding tube.
They may be useful for patients who can't or have difficulty swallowing pills, such as the elderly or kids.
