Off label prescribing is the use of a registered drug for an unregistered indication and this includes use in age groups for which the drug is not registered. This applies particularly to children, but also to individuals of ages 60 and above. New drugs are, as a rule registered only from age 6 to 60 or 65. Older and younger subjects are not usually included in the clinical trials.
