  • Steroid Tablets?????

    We heard that all tablets are not created equally. What goes into making a high quality tablet? We would prefer to get some specific details so we can understand.

    Quality came from good manufacturing and good selecction on raw material. To get excellent quality, first you should know which raw material you will use and how to combine them, all depends on the active ingredients you want to deliver. It is essential to test your both, active ingredients as your excipients and compare them with the USP Pharmacopoeia, if they are in the comparative rank you are in the right way.
    Excelent tablets are those how get there purpose , that is to get the active ingredients to the right receptors and that is the job of the excipients. The excipients are the ones that cover the active ingredients and block all the hostile enviroment of the journey from the mouth (in this case) to the receptor. Depending on were are the receptors you will have to choose you excipients .
    Excipients handle many factors like: disintegration, hardness, acidity, absorption and stability, that is why this elements are so important when you are talking about high quality.

      So what it sounds like if the manufacturer does not use the correct formula of excipients then that can have an effect on the absorption of the drug. For an Ex. If you take a 20mg tablet and it is not formulated with the correct excipients you may not be absorbing all 20mg? Correct?

        So, if I understood well, what you said can possibly mean that when the compounds are wrongly chosen and combined (raw material + excipients) the whole purpose of the table could entirely fail and not have any effect at all at the end. Sounds like you must know what you're doing while producing tablets... Am I right?
