Orally Disintegrating Tablets (ODTs) and Granules (ODGs) are solid dosage forms formulated to disintegrate in the mouth rapidly on contact with saliva without the need for water. The active ingredients are absorbed within the gastrointestinal tract. ODTs and ODGs are sometimes referred to as “Fastmelts” or “Stick Powders”.
Sublingual Tablets are also solid dosage forms formulated to disintegrate in the mouth rapidly on contact with saliva without the need for water but the active ingredients are absorbed within the mouth.
Increased patient compliance is often reported due to ease of administration, particularly for patients having trouble swallowing conventional tablets and capsules.
AWS Medical’s ODTs and ODGs utilise patented manufacturing techniques to overcome the absorption of water from the oral mucosa and consequently don’t leave an unpleasant sense of dryness in the mouth.
Our Sublingual Tablets also utilise patented manufacturing techniques which result in rapid dissolution (< 20 seconds) which, in addition to avoiding unpleasant dryness in the mouth, allows for higher mass than conventional sublingual tablets. This in turn allows for relatively higher strength of active ingredients compared to conventional sublingual tablets.
As the active ingredients are dissolved in a solution they are ready for rapid absorption in the gastrointestinal system resulting in a fastest on-set of action, beneficial in treating acute symptoms such as pain for example.
