Fast dissolving oral thin films are thin & elegant films that dissolves instantaneously when kept on the tongue. These films do not require water for their administration. The films are instantly wettable, rapidly dissolving, non-sticky, non-tacky, and non-curving. As much as 100 mg of active drug can be loaded on these films.
The new drug delivery system set to revolutionise the mode of drug administration.
Conventional oral solid dosage forms like tablets and capsules, despite their several advantages and resultant popularity, suffer from one great disadvantage, that is they have to be swallowed preferably with water or any other liquid. Voluntary swallowing is a hindrance in drug administration for children, elderly, mentally challenged, nauseated, unconscious and bedridden patients.
A need for non-obstructive dosage form possessing the other advantages of tablets has been felt constantly by the physicians and patients for many years. The concept of oral thin films as drug-delivering dosage forms evolved as an answer to the need for this special need patient population.
