Advice on administration via enteral tube
Consider switching to insulin if appropriate. Current resources suggest that it is likely to be safe to administer via enteral feeding tubes as a last resort, however this is an unlicensed use of the medication. Clinicians should refer to specialist resources for advice on how to administer this medication via enteral feeding tubes.
