ABSTRACT:
The oral route is most popular route for the administration of therapeutic agents because of the low cost of therapy and ease of administration lead to high levels of patient compliance. The most popular oral solid dosage forms are tablets and capsules. Oral fast dissolving films is relatively a new dosage form in which thin film is prepared using hydrophilic polymers which rapidly dissolves on tongue or Buccal cavity. The films overcome the fear of chocking. An ideal film should have the properties like pleasant taste, high stability, ease of handling and administration, no water necessary for application. Fast dissolving oral delivery systems are solid dosage forms, which disintegrate or dissolve within 1 min when placed in the mouth without drinking water or chewing.
