Mouth dissolving films are oral solid dosage material that disintegrates and dissolves when put in the mouth without taking water or chewing within a minute. Because of their flexibility and comfort in use, mouth dissolving film is the most advanced oral solid dosage form. Mouth dissolving film has the ability to enhance initiation of action by reducing the dosage and removing the risk of chocking. Such films have the ability to systemically distribute the drug via intragastric, sublingual, or buccal administration pathway. This type of technology offers a convenient way of dosing medication not to specific population groups such as pediatric, geriatric, bedridden patients, mentally ill patients but to the general population as well. Mouth-dissolving film formulations are a revolutionary dosage method for optimizing drug distribution, initiating action, and patient compliance.
