Among different challenges of drug formulations for pediatric use, bitterness and un-palatable taste of most drugs represent the main barriers for treatment completion in pediatrics. Enhancing the palatability and sweet taste of these formulations would be translated as enhanced patient compliance and improved therapeutic value in addition to the commercial benefits for the pharmaceutical companies. Masking the un-pleasant taste of the drug is done by various masking technologies. Among the newly developed technologies is co-crystallization of the drug with a sweetener.
