In April 2014 we launched the Oral Strip for patients having trouble with their sleep. It has been very popular, with over 40,000 strips dispensed Australia-wide.
That’s 40,000 restful nights, provided at less than $1 per dose.
The advantages of the strip are plentiful:
- Administration to paediatric and geriatric patients — the difﬁculty of swallowing larger oral doses of capsules is eliminated1,2
- Ease of transportation, consumer handling and storage2
- Compared to sublingual drops, precision in the administered dose is ensured from each of the strips1,2,3
- Ease of swallowing and no need for water4 — preferred by patients suffering from dysphagia, repeated emesis, motion sickness and mental disorders2
- Can be consumed at any place or any time as per convenience of the individual1,2
- Rapid onset of action1,2
- High level of patient compliance3
- Pleasant tasting3
- Strips are stable at room temperature for 6 months (store under 30 degrees)
