What Distinguishes Caplets from Tablets?

The solid medicine forms known as tablets are compacted into tiny, oblong or circular discs. Caplets are more easily swallowed than pills because of their smaller size and smoother surface. It is possible to crush and divide caplets and tablets into smaller quantities.

Caplets and tablets both fall under the category of medication. To help slow down the flow of the medication into the body, they are both coated with sugar and other substances. When compared to other types of medicine, they are less expensive to create. Caplets and tablets have a longer shelf life than other medicine types, according to AllStarHealth.com.
