HERMES PHARMA is a division of Hermes Arzneimittel, a leading German pharmaceutical company that manages a rich portfolio of over-the-counter (OTC) brands.


We focus exclusively on user-friendly dosage forms and have more than 40 years of experience in this area. The oral route is generally considered a simple and cost-efficient way of drug delivery, primarily using tablets or capsules. However, recent data suggest that difficulties swallowing tablets and capsules are widespread, 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.

HERMES PHARMA is the leading expert for effervescent and chewable tablets, lozenges, instant drinks, orally disintegrating granules and HERMES NutriCaps. These user-friendly dosage forms:

-Are convenient to use and to take
-Are easy to swallow – even for people with dysphagia.
-Integrate easily into the busy lives of modern patients.
-Can be taken with or without liquids to suit the individual.
-Taste great and offer a variety of choices in terms of flavor.
-Allow greater amounts and different combinations of API to be delivered in a single dose, simplifying treatment regimens.

User-friendly dosage forms help to increase compliance and improve treatment success. Whilst creating a convenient and enjoyable experience for the patient, they also support healthcare companies to revitalize ageing products and boost brand loyalty.
