Fast Dissolving Tablets have emerged as one of the most popular and widely accepted dosage forms, especially for the pediatric and geriatric patients. To obviate the problem of dysphasia and to improve patient compliance, FDTs have gained considerable attention as preferred alternatives to conventional tablet and capsule formulations. Various scientific techniques including freeze drying, moulding, freeze drying, sublimation, direct compression, cotton candy process, mass extrusion, melt granulation etc. have been employed for the development of FDTs. These techniques render the disintegration of tablet rapidly and dissolve in mouth without chewing or additional water intake. The current article is focused on ideal characteristics, advantages, methods of preparation, superdisintegrants, and evaluation parameters.
