Abstract

1. The orally disintegrating formulation of olanzapine dissolves rapidly on contact with saliva. 2. In certain cases, orally disintegrating olanzapine may be administered, instead of injection of an antipsychotic agent. 3. Orally disintegrating olanzapine is intended to deliver a dose analogous to regular olanzapine tablets.
