The skin offers an accessible & convenient site for the administration of medication. The transdermal drug delivery system has been a safe &effective drug delivery system, it aims to deliver the drug through the skin at a predetermined rate and controlled rate. If a drug has the right mix of physical chemistry and pharmacology, transdermal delivery is a remarkably effective route of administration. The transdermal patch is a medicated adhesive patch that is placed on the skin to deliver a specific dose & medication through the skin & into the bloodstream. Often, this promotes healing to an injured area of the body. An advantage of the TDDS route over other types of medication delivery such as oral, topical, and IV is that the patch provides a controlled release of medication into the patient. Due to the large advantages of TDDS, many new researches are going on today to incorporate newer drugs via this system.
