A novel drug delivery system plays a pivotal role in enhancing patient adherence to medication regimens. Among these innovative approaches, fast dissolving tablets (FDT’s) stand out as a particularly promising option. FDT’s offer a range of benefits, including precise dosing, ease of transport, streamlined manufacturing, robust physical and chemical stability, and they serve as an excellent alternative for both paediatric and geriatric patients. The formulation of FDT’s harnesses the advantages of both liquid and conventional tablet formulations, while also surpassing the merits of traditional dosage forms. In this comprehensive review, we delve into the advantages and limitations of FDT’s, the imperative need for their formulation, key formulation factors, the role of excipients, methodology, and critical evaluation parameters.
