Both tablets and capsules have proven to be very reliable and easily absorbable dosage forms. The initial reason for the development of capsules was to mask the taste and odor of specific pharmaceutical ingredients. Capsules are becoming popular due to the following reasons: easy to swallow, bright appearance, colorable, odorless, and easy to fill and process.
A tablet is obtained by directly compressing a powder of an active ingredient. Many "inactive" ingredients, primarily sugars, starches and other fillers, are often added to tablets to achieve a more effective and stable tablet form. Some tablets use a coating to help mask odor and promote swallowing.www.tljn.com/
