Orally Disintegrating Tablets (ODT) are a well-established dosage form that improves patient convenience, enabling patients to take their medicines without resorting to the need for a glass of water to facilitate swallowing.
ODTs are particularly targeted at specific patient groups such as paediatric, geriatric and dysphagic types. Many active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) have been formulated into ODTs and successfully commercialised.
Most of these products are low-dose and reasonably palatable without the need for substantial taste masking, with drug taste overcome by the appropriate use of excipients, flavours and sweeteners.
