I think you'll find there aren't many drugs that have been "clinically trialed" for use in children
1.there isn't the market (Drug Co's only do thing to make money)
2.no insurance company in their right mind will indemnify a drug company - too many variables etc etc
3.Ethically - its a nightmare
it'ss only years of experience and use, that gives us drug dosages.
I work in neonates, only one drug is licensed for use in this patient group, but we use others "off license"
Why - becasue we have no choice
