Conventional oral solid dosage forms like tablets and capsules, in spite of their several advantages and resultant popularity, suffer from one great disadvantage, that is they have to be swallowed preferably with water or any other liquid. Voluntary swallowing is a hindrance in drug administration for children, elderly, mentally challenged, nauseated, unconscious and bedridden patients.
