Fast Dissolving Tablets: Better Option for Pediatrics and Geriatrics
Fast dissolving tablets are getting more importance as it has advantages over conventional tablets and liquid dosage form. Problems like dysphasia, swallowing, shocking are not seen with fast dissolving tablets. As it mixes rapidly as comes in contact with saliva. Direct compression method is the most common, simple, less step and low cost methods. Fast dissolving tablets preparation i.e based on many techniques like spray drying, sublimation, melt granulation, lyophilization, mass extrusion etc and by addition of superdisintegrant. In the review paper we are going to discuss regarding fast dissolving tablets, their preparation and evaluation methods.
