Such formulations provide an opportunity for product line extension in the many elderly persons will have difficulties in taking oral dosage forms (viz., solutions, suspensions, tablets, and capsules) because of hand tremors and dysphasia. Swallowing problems also are common in young individuals because of their underdeveloped muscular and nervous systems. Other groups that may experience problems using conventional oral dosage forms include the mentally ill, the developmentally disabled, and patients who are uncooperative, on reduced liquid-intake plans, or are nauseated. In some cases such as motion sickness, sudden episodes of allergic attack or coughing, and an unavailability of water, swallowing conventional tablets may be difficult. This paper summarizes the formulation methods and drug formulation coming in market.
