- Do not administer enterally to neonates <7 days old
- For enteral administration to neonates >7 days of age, use the formulation for injection
Infants and Older Children:
- Give capsule PO with food or a full glass of water to avoid esophageal ulceration
When necessary, capsules may be opened and contents given mixed in a small amount of fluid or soft food. Patients should also take a full glass of fluid with drug and be discouraged from lying down for 30 minutes after ingestion. Supine positioning and small fluid volumes have been associated with esophageal ulceration.
