Rectal Routes as an Alternative for Drugs Administration in Children

Grace Lydia Budiputri

Abstract: Giving drugs to children has their own difficulties due to several conditions that make children unwilling to take medicine. Although oral administration of the drug is the most convenient route of choice, there are some conditions that require other drug delivery. The rectal route of drug administration is often used in children for several conditions, such as fever and seizures. In addition, rectal drug administration can be an alternative route of drug administration when the child’s condition makes it impossible to get the drug orally or intravenously. The rectal environment is relatively stable and constant that gave benefit to drug absorption. There are some conditions that will be more favorable with rectal administration, but there are some conditions that do not allow rectal administration of the drug. In short, rectal administration route of drugs may be the right choice depending on the type of drug and the patient’s clinical condition.
