However, recent data suggest that difficulties swallowing tablets/capsules are a widespread problem, occurring across all age groups and potentially impacting treatment success. These findings indicate that conventional solid dosage forms may not be the best option for all individuals, and often fail to keep pace with the evolving needs of modern patients.
