Abstract

The oral route is most popular route for the administration of therapeutic agents because of low cost, ease of administration and high level of patient compliance. The most popular oral solid dosage forms are tablets and capsules. Many patients find it difficult to swallow tablets and hard gelatin capsules particularly pediatric and geriatric patients and result in non- compliance. Difficulty in swallowing or dysphasia is seen to afflict nearly 35% of the general population. Fast dissolving drug delivery system is used to overcome this problem. When put on the tongue, this film dissolves instantaneously releasing the medication.
