ABSTRACT:
Various dosage forms have been introduced in the recent days in the field of pharmaceutical technology. Transdermal patch is a technique from which a new drug delivery system that is oral dispersible film was developed. Oral dispersible films when they placed on mouth or oral cavity, they disintegrate or dissolve within a minute. Even though in a solid dosage form it doesn’t require chewing or drinking of water, which enhances the patient compliance. There are number of ingredients are used to formulate oral dispersible patches, like active pharmaceutical ingredients, polymers, flavouring agents, colouring agents etc, in which we can regard polymer as important ingredient which helps to form the film. Usually hydrophobic polymer are used for oral dissolving films which breaks down on the tongue or buccal cavity and then drug will go to systemic circulation. Fast disintegrating property, good mechanical property like mouth dissolving property of film can be achieved by water soluble polymer. Moreover in oral dispersible films, accurate and effective dosing can be accomplished in a safe manner.
