Oral route is the most preferred route for administration of various drugs because it is regarded as safest, most convenient and economical route. Recently researchers developed the fast dissolving tablet (FDT) with improved patient compliance and convenience. FDTs are solid dosage forms which dissolve rapidly in saliva without chewing and additional water. FDTs overcome the disadvantages of conventional dosage form especially dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing) in pediatric and geriatric patients. This review includes ideal properties, characteristics, challenges in formulation, suitability of drug candidates, various technologies including patented technologies, evaluation methods and various marketed products. Keywords: Fast dissolving tablet, oral route, excipients, direct compression.
