Abstract

Mini-tablets represent a new trend in solid dosage form design, with the main goal of overcoming some therapeutic obstacles. Mini tablets are multiple unit dosage forms and are advantageous than pellets or any other oral dosage forms as they are easy to manufacture and stability problems are less. Offering some therapeutic benefits such as dose flexibility and combined release patterns. They do not require any solvent for their production and also local irritation can be avoided by the use of mini tablet Mini tablet offer several advantages like they can be manufactured relatively easily, They are not require less coating materials and also there is a great flexibility during their formulation development. Mini tablet are more acceptable in children and elderly people as they are easy to swallow. The objective of controlled drug delivery systems is to reduce the frequency of the dosing and to increase the effectiveness of the drug by localization.


Keywords: Mini-tablets, solid dosage form, oral dosage forms.
