With parenteral administration, intramuscular (IM) is the preferred approach because it increases the bioavailability of the drug, acts more quickly than the enteric route, and can be administered when enteric administration is impossible (e.g., in cases of vomiting, an uncooperative or unconscious patient, etc.).1,2 In this method of administration, drugs are often administered into the deltoid or gluteal muscles, which is the commonly selected region thanks to safety, ease of application, less pain compared to the deltoid site, and more volume of drug delivered.1,3 Medication injected into the gluteal region is absorbed almost completely and reaches the target site through the vena cava inferior without entering the enterohepatic cycle.
