Summary for Patent: 4,671,953
Title: Methods and compositions for noninvasive administration of sedatives, analgesics, and anesthetics
Abstract:The present invention is directed to methods and compositions for noninvasively administering drugs having a sedative, analgesic, or anesthetic effect. A drug capable of absorption through mucosal tissues in incorporated into a candy matrix, which is then advantageously formed into a lollipop. A patient is put at ease when given the lollipop, and the drug rapidly enters the patient's bloodstream as the lollipop is sucked. When sedating or anesthetizing the patient, the physician can observe the patient's condition and remove the lollipop when it has had a desired effect on the patient. Alternatively, the physican can alter placement of the lollipop to slow the rate of the drug release for absorption into the patient's system. An analgesic-containing lollipop can be self-administrated by a patient in response to his own subjective experience of pain and to the patient's susceptibility to the particular drug utilized.
