Recently pharmaceutical preparations used for elderly patients have been investigated to improve the treatment compliances and quality of life of patients. Recent advances in Novel Drug Delivery System (NDDS) aims to enhance safety and efficacy of drug molecule by formulating a convenient dosage form for administration and to achieve better patient compliance. One such approach is "Mouth Dissolving Tablet" are disintegrates instantaneously when placed on tongue, releasing the drug that dissolves or disperses in the saliva. Mouth Dissolving Drug Delivery System emerged from the desire to provide patient with conventional mean of taking their medication. Difficulty in swallowing (Dysphagia) is a common problem of all age groups, especially elderly and pediatrics, because of physiological changes associated with these groups of patients. The saliva containing the dissolved or dispersed medicament is then swallowed and the drug is absorbed in the normal way. Some drugs are absorbed from the mouth, pharynx and esophagus as the saliva passes down into the stomach & it may produce rapid onset of action. Bioavailability of drug is significantly greater than those observed from conventional tablet dosage form.
