Abstract

Systemic effect producing medicinal and other curative agents can be taken by several route of administration but oral route is considered to be more effective route and possess high degree of patient compliance. Orodispersible tablet is the solid unit dosage form containing super disintegrates which impart the quality of quick disintegration in the presence of saliva and without producing any difficulty in swallowing of tablet. ODTs have very porous structure and highly soluble composition which get dispersed even in small presence of water such as saliva because this dosage form has been developed mainly for geriatric, pediatric and bedridden or disabled patients. For Rapid drug delivery ODTs are considered to be preferred dosage form.
