Transdermal drug delivery system (TDDS) is one of the systems categorized under the controlled drug delivery, where drugs are delivered through the skin at a predetermined and controlled rate. These systems are used for treating various disease conditions such as cardiovascular disorders, and central nervous system disorders, etc. Drugs administered through skin patches include scopolamine (for motion sickness), nicotine (for quitting smoking), nitro-glycerine (for angina), and lidocaine to relieve the pain of shingles (herpes zoster). These devices have various advantages, like prolonged therapeutic effect, reduced side-effects, improved bioavailability, better patient compliance and easy termination of drug therapy.
