Applied Sciences homework help

The unapproved use of approved drugs, also called off-label use, with children is quite common. This is because pediatric dosage guidelines are typically unavailable, since very few drugs have been specifically researched and tested with children. When treating children, prescribers often adjust dosages approved for adults to accommodate a child’s weight. However, children are not just “smaller” adults. Adults and children process and respond to drugs differently in their absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion.
Write a 1-page narrative in APA format that addresses the following:
1.Explain the circumstances under which children should be prescribed drugs for off-label use. Be specific and provide examples.
2.Describe strategies to make the off-label use and dosage of drugs safer for children from infancy to adolescence. Include descriptions and names of off-label drugs that require extra care and attention when used in pediatrics.
This is an interactive source that is needed to be used for the assignment. I will paste the link and let me know if it works. It worked last time for you so hopefully it works again
