Capsules are a great dosage form to improve patient compliance, as they are tasteless, odorless and easy to swallow. For pharmaceutical producers, they provide an economic and easy-to-store option while requiring a minimum amount of excipients. Capsules provide an option to process pressure-, temperature- and moisture-sensitive APIs.
