Dosage form: TABLETS

Tablets consist of the active ingredient and excipients, which are pressed from powdered form and swallowed. They dissolve in the stomach and release the active ingredient. There are many tablet forms, for example chewable, lozenge, effervescent or film-coated tablets. It is usually important that tablets are taken with enough liquid. A glass of water is a good guideline.

Retard tablets - "Retard" means "delayed". Certain excipients in sustained-release tablets ensure that the tablets dissolve in the stomach with a delay and thus release the active ingredient over a longer period of time. In some cases, taking the tablets once a day is sufficient.
