    The transdermal drug delivery systems (TDDSs) are polymeric patches with drugs are designed to deliver a therapeutically active agent through the skin. TDDS provides better patient acceptability and compliance over the oral route of administration. The system has improved therapeutic efficacy and safety of the drugs because it deliverers through the skin layer of the patient at a controlled and predetermined rate. As skin is an effective medium from which absorption of the drug takes place and it enters the circulatory system to maintain steady-state blood concentration. The system is a desirable form of drug delivery because of the merits such as pain-free self-administration for patients and avoids the first-pass metabolism over other routes of delivery systems. In this article, an outline of the TDDS, merits over conventional drug delivery system, skin layers, various components of transdermal systems, permeability enhancers, applications, and evaluation parameters of transdermal system were discussed.
