PREFACE.


CANDY MEDICATION has given such delightful results in practice among
children that the author believes it should be more widely known
and used. A formulary to serve as the common meeting ground for the
prescribing physician and the dispensing pharmacist seems absolutely
necessary to make this form of medication more generally available; and
it is mainly to supply this formulary that this little book has been
published.

Researches conducted by the author in the Pharmacologic Laboratory of
the University of Illinois during the past five years, as well as the
experience gained by the use of this form of medication in private
practice, form the basis of this publication.

To give the best results, the sweet tablets described in this formulary
should be freshly prepared on physician's order; thereby securing
efficiency and palatability to the highest degree, and enabling
the physician to prescribe the dose and combination needed for the
particular case in hand. To bring these tablets into the category of
extemporaneous preparations, the author has elaborated the process of
"fat covering" which makes the preparation of these tablets no more
difficult than the making of pills or of suppositories.

In the pages that precede the formulary, an attempt has been made to
present the principles that have been used in the elaboration of the
formulae, so that formulae for other medicaments suitable to this form
of administration may be developed.

Concise directions on the care and use of the tablet machine have been
included, to enable any pharmacist equipped with an inexpensive tablet
machine to prepare these tablets without difficulty.

The author is keenly aware of the fact that there are probably still
some imperfections in the formulae given herein; though he has
spared neither time nor labor in making them as perfect as possible.
Therefore, comments and criticisms, as well as suggestions, are most
welcome, and will receive careful consideration.

It is the author's hope that this booklet may be instrumental in
robbing childhood of one of its terrors, namely, nasty medicine; that
it may lessen the difficulties experienced by nurse and mother in
giving medicament to the sick child; and help to make the doctor more
popular with the little ones.

CANDY MEDICATION



CHAPTER I.

HISTORICAL INTRODUCTION.


THE IDEA of presenting medicine in candy form is really very old.
The term confection, which originally meant a medicinal compound
being derived from the Latin word "_conficere_," to put together, has
been applied since the days of classical antiquity to mixtures of
medicinal substances with saccharine matter. The only official relics
of this once very extensive class of preparations are the confection
of rose and the confection of senna; both of which, however, are
also practically obsolete. The reason for this is not difficult to
find. Neither of them come up to our modern ideas of a confection.
We may officially call them a confection, but a youngster would be
disrespectful enough to disagree with the pharmacopoeia.

More closely akin to candy are lozenges, and yet they are not real
candy. The only one among them that is pleasant is the santonin
lozenge; and it is the only one that is popular. An especially good
imitation of candy form are the deservedly popular so-called German
worm lozenges. It was acquaintance with these that led the writer to
seek for other real candy medicaments. He could find only two such upon
the market: viz., Calomel Tablets under the name of "Aromatic Calomel,"
and Phenolphthalein Tablets under various fanciful trade-names, such
as "Purgen," "Phenolax," etc., unless "Candy Cathartic Cascarets,"
and the French candy laxative known as "Tamar Indien" were also to be
included.

       *       *       *       *       *

Convinced that administration in candy form would be ideal for
children, the author took a number of years ago a course of instruction
with a candy-maker, in the hope of finding in the confectioner's art
some new form of pleasant administration for medicine. He made sulphur
taffy and cod-liver oil chocolate creams;[1] but these and a large
number of other attempts were unsuccessful. It may be of interest,
in this connection, to note that, in 1911, Sir James Sawyer[2]
published in "The Lancet" a process for the production of what he
calls "cremulae" or medicated chocolate creams. They were prepared by
evaporating a mixture of sugar and of milk to the consistency of paste,
in which various medicaments might be incorporated, and which is then
covered with chocolate, as in the popular chocolate drop. This is, as
will be seen, a troublesome process. The author's studies in the candy
shop seemed to point to "fondant" as the most suitable candy form for
purposes of medication. "Fondant", however, has the disadvantage of
becoming hard with age. Free from this objection and closely similar
to the "fondant" is a rather lightly compressed tablet made of finely
powdered cane sugar. And so finally the tablet form was chosen as
the best and most convenient for candy medication--a form which was
already in successful use, as has been stated, for the administration
of calomel and of phenolphthalein. For such tablets the term _tabellae
dulces_,[3] or sweet tablets, might be proposed.



CHAPTER II.

TABELLAE DULCES.


TO BE SUCCESSFUL, sweet tablets must meet the following requirements:

1. They must be perfectly delicious sweets, attractive in form, color,
and odor; and free from the slightest suspicion of disagreeable or
medicinal taste.

2. They must disintegrate rapidly in the mouth; for a sick child will
usually not suck candy as a healthy youngster would.

3. To constitute a real advance in therapeutics, it must be possible
for the average pharmacist to prepare them extemporaneously, so that
the physician may be able to fit the medicament to suit the case,
and that the pharmacist may not be forced to carry in stock a large
assortment of these more or less perishable goods.

In view of these exacting requirements, it may seem remarkable
that over fifty different medicaments are at present available for
administration in the form of sweet tablets. This has been accomplished
by taking advantage of the fact that some medicines are practically
tasteless; that modern synthetic chemistry has enriched our resources
in this direction by the production of a large number of tasteless,
or almost tasteless, and yet active substances; and that many of the
isolated active principles of drugs are easily disguised. In some
cases a chemical trick is successful, e. g., using a little alkali
or a little acid to render the substance less soluble in the mouth.
Some of the bitterest alkaloids, e.g., strychnine, have been rendered
available for candy medication by the use of finely powdered fuller's
earth, or of Lloyd's Reagent, to be described later. Quite a number of
almost insoluble substances of slight but lingering taste can be made
perfectly pleasant by saccharinization.



CHAPTER III.

THE USES OF SWEET TABLETS.


IT MAY seem strange that modern pharmacy which boasts of so many
elegant and palatable preparations suitable for adults, has thus far
done so little to render medicine more acceptable to children; and yet
attractiveness and palatability are even more important for the little
ones than for the grown-ups. Syrups have hitherto been our chief aids
in making medicines more pleasant for children. Unfortunately, however,
many a child has had its palate offended by liquid medicines to such
a degree that it abhors spoon-medicine of any kind, and will struggle
even against the most palatable. When one witnesses the struggling
of the average child against the average medicine, one cannot but
wonder whether at times the struggle does not do more harm than the
medicine can do good, and wish that we had other means of administering
medicines to the little ones. As all children love candy, this would
seem the form most desirable for them. For one who has not used candy
medication there is a revelation in store in the positive enjoyment
and eagerness with which children take these sweet tablets. And many
a petted child that has grown up into a sensitive woman, who believes
she cannot swallow a pill, also cannot and will not take medicine. It
so happens that just these are often excessively fond of candy and
will take candy medicine. Another use for candy medication is in the
treatment of the insane, who frequently will not take medicine, but may
take it in candy form.

Of course, a large variety of combinations of these could be elaborated.

It, therefore, seems established that we have, in candy medication,
a method of fairly extensive applicability; an almost complete
therapeutic armamentarium of the greatest possible value in the
treatment of children. For the tiny infant this method is, of course,
unsuitable as well as unnecessary. As soon, however, as the youngster
commences to know what candy is, it is ready for candy medication. It
is particularly during the ages of from three to ten that this form of
administration is indicated.

Several objections have been raised against this method. Perhaps the
most serious one lies in the danger of poisoning, from the fact that
children enjoy these tablets so much that they are likely to eat a
large number of them at one time, should the mother be careless enough
to leave them within reach. The only way to prevent such an occurrence
is not to prescribe more tablets than would constitute a safe dose
should all of them be taken at one time. It is better to have the
patient get a new supply daily than to have a single case of death or
serious disturbance occur from this source.

Another objection that has been raised is that the dose of some of the
medicines is very small. In the case of such remedies as sulphur and
chalk the author admits that the dose is perhaps too small to be of
practical importance. In the case of most other medicaments, however,
the smallness of dose is of advantage rather than of disadvantage,
in that it necessitates administration at short intervals. If the
administration of small doses frequently repeated until the desired
effect is obtained is a good principle in practice, it is particularly
so in pediatrics. For are not all the vital processes of the child much
more rapid than those of the adult; are not its bowel movements, its
urinations more frequent, does it not need nourishment more often? Then
why not medicine?



CHAPTER IV.

THE MAKING OF SWEET TABLETS.


IT IS GENERALLY supposed that tablet making is an art, requiring
special expertness and expensive machinery. Now while both of these
ideas are correct when the preparation of a large variety of tablets
and of large quantities is contemplated, they are erroneous in regard
to the making of prescription quantities of these sweet tablets, which
present a comparatively simple and relatively uniform problem in tablet
making.

Though the process of making moulded tablets was introduced by Dr.
Robert M. Fuller of New York before the Academy of Medicine on February
21, 1878, in a paper entitled: "Dose-Dispensing Simplified,"[4] the
simplification was evidently not such that druggists could notice it;
for moulded tablets have not become popular among them, perhaps mainly
because they require drying. Likewise are compressed tablets, which
were introduced even earlier by Professor Brockeden of England in 1844,
considered unsuitable for extemporaneous preparation, as granulation
of the powder by moistening is believed to be necessary; and this, of
course, also requires drying.

A step in the direction of rendering tablet making available for
extemporaneous preparation was made in 1909 by A. Schleimer[5] by
advocating the use of cacao butter in lieu of granulation of the
powder and subsequent drying. This brings tablets into the category
of extemporaneous preparations. All that is necessary is to add three
percent of cacao butter to the powder, and it is ready for immediate
compression in a tablet machine. Having found that cacao butter is
liable to become rancid on keeping of some tablets made with it, the
author experimented to find a substitute devoid of this tendency, and
found it in paraffin of low melting point.[6] For tablets that are
not to be kept for any length of time, cacao butter is preferable, as
it melts readily and is digestible. The amount of paraffin, however,
that enters into the composition of each tablet is so small that in
spite of its indigestibility, it seems that it could not meet with any
but theoretic objection. Either of these materials, in form of fine
shavings, is added to the extent of three to five per cent. with just
sufficient trituration to distribute fairly well. Excessive trituration
lessens the efficiency of the lubricating agent. If the tablet has a
tendency to stick to the punches, the material can be worked better if
a little talcum, say three per cent. is added to the powder by stirring
it in with a spatula rather than by trituration. This process renders
tablet making no more difficult or time-consuming than the making of
pills or capsules.

       *       *       *       *       *

The author has succeeded in still further simplifying the process by
the preparation of what he would propose to call "fat sugar." Having
noticed that the addition of, say, 10 per cent. of powdered cacao to
sugar forms an almost ideal powder for immediate compression in the
tablet machine, the idea occurred to him to reproduce, as nearly as
possible, the physical condition of cacao by covering each particle of
powdered starch with a thin layer of fat, which can readily be done by
triturating starch with liquid petrolatum. While other fat, such as
cacao butter, "Crisco" or paraffin, might be used for this purpose, by
dissolving the fat in ether and thus distributing it over the starch,
permitting the ether subsequently to evaporate, the author has found
that liquid petrolatum, 1 part, distributed over 3 parts of starch
forms a powder which added to sugar in proportion of about twenty
per cent. renders it admirably suitable for compression in a tablet
machine. The starch might be sweetened by previously triturating it
with an alcoholic solution of saccharin and permitting the alcohol to
evaporate; though this sweetening is not essential. For starch, thus
prepared, the author proposes the name "fat starch", the formula for
which will be found in Chapter VIII. Sugars containing twenty per cent.
of "fat starch", are ready for immediate compression in the tablet
machine; and admit of admixture of a moderate amount of medicament
without losing this quality. If a large amount of medicament is to
be incorporated, then an additional amount of "fat starch" should
be allowed. Sugars containing "fat starch" the author has called
"fat sugars" for want of a better name. He is aware of the fact that
petrolatum is not a fat in the true sense of the word. Nevertheless
it is, no doubt, its "fatty" nature that does the work; other fatty
substances, such as cacao butter or "Crisco", producing the same result
as far as rendering the powder suitable for compression in the tablet
machine is concerned. Liquid petrolatum has the advantage over these of
being devoid of tendency to rancidity.

Excessive trituration interferes with the efficiency of the fat starch,
evidently by distributing the fat all over the powder, rendering it
homogeneous, which is inimical to tablet making. Therefore in case of
the red fat sugar which is used as a vehicle for poisonous medicaments
that require very thorough trituration, it is recommended that the fat
starch be added after the trituration.

The author would suggest that the pharmacist prepare the various fat
sugars described in Chapter VIII and that he keep them on hand, in
a cool and _dark_ place, adding the medicament as prescribed by the
physician, making use of Chapter VII for guidance in the elaboration of
individual formulae.



CHAPTER V.

THE TABLET MACHINE.


THE GROUNDLESSNESS of the second objection to tablet making by retail
druggists, namely, the necessity of possessing expensive machinery, can
perhaps best be shown by the illustrations here given. The simplest
and yet practical form of tablet machine known to the author is the
"No. 25" machine of Whitall-Tatum Company of Philadelphia (Fig. 1). The
price of this machine is about ten dollars.

Its chief disadvantage is that it works rather slowly, as the powder
must be put into the die by hand with a small tool furnished with the
machine. An automatically feeding machine of reasonable price is the
"Eureka" Hand Tablet Machine, furnished by the F. J. Stokes Co., of
Philadelphia (Fig. 2). This machine may also be obtained for motor
power.

Detailed directions for the putting up and the use of these machines
seem unnecessary here as they accompany the machine when sent out by
the manufacturer. A few points on the care of the tablet machine may,
however, be brought out in order to save the novice trouble and mishaps.

All compressing machines for tablet making consist essentially of a die
and two punches, an upper and a lower. It is important that these be
kept scrupulously clean and free from rust, nicks and scratches; for
unless these parts be perfectly smooth it is impossible to get them to
work properly. When not in use, they should be kept completely covered
with vaselin or else immersed in liquid petrolatum, in order to protect
them against rust. When required for use, the grease is removed from
them as completely as possible by means of a soft cloth.

[Illustration: Fig. 1

A simple yet practical form of tablet machine.]

In putting the die and punches into the machine, it is best to put in
the lower punch first, making sure that it has been pushed completely
down into its socket. Then put in the die, so that the top of the die
be exactly flush all around with the table of the machine. See to it
that the face of the lower punch be exactly flush with the top of the
die when the punch is at its highest point. Then insert the upper punch
in its socket; and let it enter the die before locking it in place, so
as to insure perfect alignment.

[Illustration: Fig. 2.

The Eureka Hand Tablet Machine. An automatically feeding machine of
reasonable price.]

When die and punches are to be removed, take out the upper punch first,
then the lower punch and die, which may come out suddenly and be
injured by knocking against the upper punch if the latter be still in
place.

When particles of the powder stick to the die or punches, they should
not be scraped off with a hard instrument, as this is liable to
scratch, but should be wiped off with a soft, slightly moistened
cloth. To prevent sticking, a little talcum may be used, sprinkled over
the powder and lightly mixed by stirring with a spatula.

When the upper face of the tablet splits off, we speak of "capping."
To overcome this, ten per cent. of fat starch may be added to the
powder. Should "capping" still occur, the amount of fat starch might be
increased. "Capping" may also be due to the use of excessive pressure.
It may furthermore be due to die or punches being worn or damaged. When
this has occurred, the best thing to do is to get a new set of punches,
or to have the damaged one refinished by an expert mechanic, preferably
the makers of the tablet machine.

It would lead us beyond the scope of this work to give detailed
directions for making tablets of all kinds. A pharmacist who has
equipped himself with a tablet machine and has developed the ambition
to make a general line of tablets[7] may be referred to Mr. Joseph R.
Wood's book[8] on this subject.



CHAPTER VI.

THE CONSTRUCTION OF FORMULAE FOR SWEET TABLETS.


Choice of Flavor.

THERE are quite a number of medicines sufficiently free from taste
and odor to be made perfectly pleasant by the mere admixture of sugar
and of flavoring. These can, of course, be prepared with any flavor
desired. In the formulary, rose has been chosen as the flavor under
these circumstances, but any other flavor may be used instead.

Substances that have a slightly acrid taste are generally best
disguised by peppermint. For sour taste, lemon is best. Wintergreen was
chosen as the flavor for salicylates.

Substances that have a slightly bitter taste are best disguised by
"vanilla cacao sugar." For drugs that, in addition to a slightly bitter
taste, have an odor that needs disguising, "cinnamon cacao sugar" is to
be preferred.


The Subduing of Tastes.

There are quite a number of drugs that have a tendency to leave a
rather persistent disagreeable after-taste, drugs of slight solubility,
particles of which remain on the tongue longer than the sugar
does, so that their taste lingers after the taste of the sugar has
disappeared. For such drugs saccharinization solves the problem of
candy medication. The saccharin will be most efficient, as the author
has shown by repeated experiments, if it is directly incorporated with
the drug in solution rather than in dry form. Saccharinization is,
therefore, carried out in the formulary by triturating the drug with a
saturated (3 per cent.) alcoholic solution of saccharin, and permitting
the alcohol to evaporate subsequently. The drying may be expedited by
using a hot mortar. When alcohol is not permissible, as in the case
of "Alcresta" preparations (see below), dry saccharinization must be
used instead, that is, triturating the drug with saccharin, preferably
a 1 to 10 trituration. Likewise when time does not permit moist
saccharinization, triturating the substance with a somewhat larger
amount of saccharin will answer the purpose.

A second expedient for the subduing of taste is fat covering, which
consists of triturating the drug with liquid petrolatum or other fat,
e. g., Crisco in ether, and permitting the ether to evaporate. The thin
film of fat left on the drug delays its solution to a slight degree,
yet sufficiently to reduce the taste, so that certain drugs--such
as aspirin, digitalis, diuretin--can be administered in the form of
sweet tablets in useful dose. In these cases, saccharinization and fat
covering combined give the best results.

       *       *       *       *       *

Most of the alkaloids can be administered in candy form by
saccharinization with or without additional fat covering, and, in the
case of some, the addition of sodium bicarbonate is still further
useful in lessening the solubility, thereby subduing the taste. Only
in the case of the bitterest alkaloids such as strychnine and of
alkaloids that have to be given in large doses such as quinine are
different expedients necessary. For quinine, aristochin or saloquinine
solve the problem. For strychnine, Lloyd's "Alcresta" strychnine gives
good results. In 1910, John Uri Lloyd[9] of Cincinnati discovered
that the addition of fuller's earth to alkaloids almost completely
abolished their bitter taste. He found on further research that this
activity resided in the finest particles, especially those of colloidal
dimensions, which could be separated from the coarser portion of
fuller's earth by elutriation. By means of this powder, now known as
Lloyd's Reagent, it is possible to obtain the bitterest alkaloids, even
strychnine, in almost tasteless form. That this strychnine combination
is still active, can be proved by the fact that it will kill a dog
almost as readily as the uncombined strychnine. Lloyd has coined the
name "Alcresta" for these alkaloidal combinations; they are marketed
by Ely Lilly and Company. The combination of the strychnine with
fuller's earth is destroyed by alkali and by alcohol. Hence alcohol
must not be added to the powder after the Alcresta combination has been
incorporated. The addition of a little acid lessens the bitterness of
the combination by lessening solubility in the mouth. The addition of
acid is also of advantage to lessen the solubility in the saliva, and
with it the taste, of such resinous bodies as the resin of podophyllum.


Choice of Color.

To indicate tablets containing poisonous substances, a dark red color
is chosen, unless cacao disguises the taste better. It would be
advisable not to prescribe more than a small number of such tablets
to be dispensed at one time, so as to prevent the possibility of
poisoning. The choice of the other colors has been more or less
without special principle underlying it, yellow having been chosen for
lemon, and green for wintergreen, leaving pink for rose and white for
peppermint. The relation of color to flavor can, of course, be varied.



CHAPTER VII.

FORMULAE FOR THE PREPARATION OF SWEET TABLETS


The subjoined formulae are published to serve for guidance in the
preparation of sweet tablets and as a basis for further study and
improvement.

The doses given are children's doses, none of them exceeding a dose
safe for a child three years of age. Most of the tablets carry as large
a dose as can well be given in this way; which in some cases, though
not in many, is not sufficient for a three-year-old child. Where a
larger dose can easily be disguised in the same manner, this fact is
noted in connection with the formulae.

A warning may not be amiss, in this connection, not to put up in this
form anything that does not result in a faultlessly pleasant, actually
delicious candy. For confidence once lost is not easily restored.

Formulae for the preparation of the stock sugars referred to in this
formulary will be found in Chapter VIII. They can all be prepared
extemporaneously. The drying necessary after the addition of coloring
may be expedited by the use of a warm mortar. Nevertheless, alternate
formulae have been inserted in most instances to facilitate rapid
extemporaneous compounding, in case the stock sugar be not at hand.

While most of these tablets keep well, a few deteriorate. In any case,
the freshly prepared tablet will be found more pleasant than one that
has become stale by being kept in stock.

Should difficulty be experienced in the compression of some of these
tablets, the addition of a little shaved paraffin by gentle trituration
in a mortar; or the stirring in of a little talcum powder with a
spatula; or both measures combined will probably overcome the trouble.
Some powders work best with light pressure; others require rather heavy
pressure.

    Solution of carmine, N. F.                0.50 Cc.
    Spirit of rose, 1%                        2.00 Cc.
