Dispersible tablets are uncoated or film-coated tablets that need to be dispersed in water before administration, which forms a homogeneous type of dispersion. It is very difficult for children and elderly patients to swallow conventional tablets, dispersible tablets are beneficial routes of drug administration for them. Thus, they are regarded as the safest, most convenient and most economical method of drug delivery having the highest patient compliance. The advantages of dispersible tablets are that they combine the advantages of solid dosage forms and liquid dosage forms, which can be used for unstable drugs in liquid dosage forms, and provide rapid effects through rapid disintegration and bioavailability. In addition, they also can help maintain the stability of the drug in a solid dosage form and make it palatable, which can be easily used in pediatric and elderly patients, and those in the uncooperative state provided that the taste of the drug is masked with appropriate masking agents.
