  Fast dissolving tablets are the most vital form of solid dosage form which are administered orally in the absence of water or fluid intake. Such tablets when put on the tongue, it readily dissolve or disintegrate in the saliva without chewing or water within <60 seconds and it improves the efficacy of APIs. In this study, the main objective was the Formulation & Evaluation of the given drug (Naproxen) & testing its various parameters such as weight variation, hardness, thickness, friability, drug content, Angle of Repose, Carr’s Index along with the disintegration studies and Drug Excipient compatibility and the results were found to be within the limits. Here, the Direct Compression technique was used to formulate the batch of Tablets (250 mg).
