Abstract:
Oral drug delivery remains the preferred route for administration of various drugs. Recent developments in the technology have prompted scientists to develop Fast dissolving tablets (FDTs) with improved patient compliance and convenience. FDTs are solid unit dosage forms, which disintegrate or dissolve rapidly in the mouth without chewing and water. Orally disintegrating tablets provide an advantage particularly for pediatric and geriatric populations who have difficulty in swallowing conventional tablets and capsules. This review describes the various formulation aspects, and technologies developed for FDTs, along with various excipients, evaluation tests, and drugs explored in this field.
