Despite some limitations, pharmacoepidemiology proves to be useful for assessing ADEs in pediatrics. With appropriate study design, this methodology can bolster our understanding about the safety of pediatric drug use. Several areas of pediatric drug safety may especially be suitable for future pharmacoepidemiological investigations. These areas include the safety of polypharmacy, long-term drug effects, and off-label drug use.
