Abstract:  Capsules are among the most popular of all dosage forms. They are chemically and physically stable, easy to administer, attractive, and can be easily compounded. They can be easily tailored to meet the needs of individual patients regarding dosing, ingredients, etc. Also, more than one drug can be incorporated in each capsule to minimize the number of dosage forms the patient must take. Special capsules can be prepared outside the norm of containing only powders.
