    Children are not reduced version adults. They have significantly different drug absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion process comparing to adults, and different age groups have unique physiological characteristics. Medications are subject to age restrictions or dose requirements when being used in pediatric population. Drug labels for children and adults should be clearly distinguishable, or there should be clear reminders of important contents involving pediatric use, to prevent harm caused by children’s misuse. Therefore, in addition to fulfilling the basic requirements of drug label design, labels for pediatric use should also highlight the characteristics of pediatric medications, and important safety information should be clearly marked.
