Mouth dissolving tablets (MDT) have received ever increasing demand during last decade and It is a rapidly a growing area in the pharmaceutical industry. After introduction into the mouth these tablets dissolve or disintegrate in the mouth and leaving an easy to swallow residue. Novel MDTs address the patient and pharmaceutical needs of convenient dosing particularly for busy or traveling patient, pediatric, geriatric and psychiatric patients who have difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia) conventional tablets and capsules. These tablets also have faster onset of action due to buccal absorption of the drug. The popularity and usefulness of the formulation resulted in development of several MDT Technologies. It is expected that this delivery system will get more importance in future as that of conventional delivery systems.

Keywords: Mouth dissolving tablets, disintegrate, residue, conventional delivery system.
