Abstract

Oral administration is widely used route of administration of drugs. The drug travels from the mouth, into the esophagus, then into the intestines. Sensing the taste is the major function of the tongue. In the formulation for pediatric & geriatric, bedridden & non-Cooperative patients, the main challenge to compounding pharmacist is to mask the taste of obnoxious and bitter drugs, result in patient non-compliance. Patients now expect and demand formulations that are pleasantly, or at least tolerable, flavored. This article reviews on taste-masking technologies and approaches for taste masking and bitterness reduction of dosage forms.
