ABSTRACT

Psoriasis is an incurable lifetime disease which can be controlled and relieved through medication. Treatment of psoriasis includes topical therapy, systemic therapy and phototherapy.

However, drawback of the conventional oral treatment such as tablets is Dysphagia, Common complaints about the difficulty in swallowing tablets are size, surface, and taste of tablets. Geriatric and pediatric patients and traveling patients, who may not have ready access to water, are most in need of easy swallowing dosage forms.

Drug dissolution and absorption, as well as onset of clinical effect and drug bioavailability, can be significantly greater than those as compared with conventional treatment of psoriasis.
