Abstract

Solid oral dosage forms are most acceptable dosage forms especially tablets are most widely accepted by people of different age groups. Mini tablets are tablets with a diameter equal to or smaller than 2–3 mm. Mini tablets are multiple unit dosage forms and are advantageous than pellets or any other oral dosage forms as they are easy to manufacture and stability problems are less. Many types of mini tablets are there like bio adhesive mini tablets, pH responsive mini tablets, gastro retentive mini tablets, paediatric mini tablets, oral disintegrating mini tablets. These mainly reduce the variation among subjects. The review emphasises on advantages of mini tablets, types, methods of manufacturing and modes of administration and evaluation of mini tablets.
