MOVING FROM SWALLOWING TO SIPPING
TRANSFORMING MEDICINE INTAKE

EFFERVESCENCE (EVT)*

Effervescent compositions offer unique advantages such as administration in solution form. They are  useful for people with gag reflex or swallowing difficulty and are especially useful for administering medicines to geriatric and pediatric patients. Effervescent compositions from conventional techniques suffer from low carbon dioxide (CO2) content, low porosity, longer disintegration times and have low mechanical strength. STEERLife's advanced  patent pending effervescent technologies help create effervescent compositions with increased porosity, rapid disintegration times and high mechanical strength while retaining a greater percentage of CO2 (as compared to the input blend).

Compositions utilising STEERLife's effervescence technologies include;

 

 

EFFERVESCENT TABLETS FOR ORAL SOLUTION

useful for people who have problems swallowing. They are also helpful for improving the bio-availability of various classes of drugs. Converting the dosage forms into effervescent flavoured and sweetened oral solutions can also enhance the acceptability
of the medications.

 

 

RAPIDLY DISINTEGRATING TABLETS FOR ORAL SUSPENSION (RDTs)

RDTs are solid unit dosage forms with improved patient compliance. RDTs are especially helpful for children and older people who have problems in swallowing. These tablets disintegrate and disperse rapidly
in a glass of water.

 

 

ORALLY DISINTEGRATING TABLETS (ODTs)

ODTs disintegrate with saliva and do not require any external source of liquid for consumption. They are especially useful for patients with dysphagia, or even children who are too young to swallow   tablets or capsules.
