Dosage route

Synonyms:
administration route, route, route of administration, route, administration

The path by which the drug is introduced into the body. For example, Doxycycline can be administered by the oral route. Several dosage routes may exist, such as intravenous, intramuscular, rectal, or sublingual. It is important to note that the dosage route is not the same as "dosage form" as it refers to the path of administration into the body, not the physical form of the drug.
