Pharmaceutical excipients are the substances that are added in a pharmaceutical dosage form which does not have their direct therapeutic action, but to aid the manufacturing process, to protect, support or enhance stability, or for bioavailability or patient acceptability. The excipients are inert and simple to active and complex substances that can be difficult to characterize. They act as the carrier (vehicle or basis) or as a component of the carrier of the active substances. It plays vital role in drug delivery within the body. It assist in product identification, and enhance any attribute of the overall safety.
