is a pediatric application. Phenobarbital is a barbiturate used to treat focal and generalized epilepsy. Since the end of marketing of the oral solution KANEURON in 2017, phenobarbital tablets remain the only available dosage form. Therefore, developing an oral phenobarbital solution for pediatric use is essential to fulfilling clinical needs. A new formulation of phenobarbital with hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrins (HPBCD) was developed, and the physicochemical stability of the solution was evaluated.
