Pharmaceutical Capsules

Definition: Pharmaceutical Capsules are unit solid dosage forms made up of gelatin shells which enclose one or more accurately measured active ingredient and/or inert substances. The medication may be a powder, a liquid or a semisolid mass.

Based on the composition of gelatin, capsules are divided as 'soft gelatin capsules' also known as 'one piece capsules' and 'hard gelatin capsules' also called as 'two-piece capsules'or 'dry filled capsules'

The capsules are intended for oral use but occasionally they can be administered rectally or vaginally.
