ABSTRACT
Iontophoretic drug delivery is now an accepted method of drug therapy which is gaining wide popularity especially in the area of pain relief. This technique provides a means for regulated non-invasive systemic administration of minute amounts of drug transdermally which is especially useful in patients who require long-term medication as in chronic pain, diabetics, hypertensives, rheumatoids etc. It negates the need for needle sticks, the pain and anxiety involved and minimises the trauma and risks of infection associated with it. This mode of drug delivery is simple, versatile, effective, reliable and can be tailored for individual needs.
