Onset of action is needed in the case of some acute diseases. Hence the Sublingual drug delivery can be best promising route of administration for a faster and direct absorption of drug into systemic circulation. The most permeable region for a drug absorption in buccal cavity is the Sublingual region. Absorption of a drug through the sublingual blood vessels bypasses the hepatic first-pass metabolism that makes better bioavailability along good patient compliance. Such sublingual approaches present numerous pharmaceutical and patient needs those are enhanced life-cycle management to suitable dosing for children as well as elderly along psychiatric patients with dysphagia. This review is to give a brief and complete overview of sublingual technologies along new and old approaches.
