SUSTAINED RELEASE EFFERVESCENT FLOATING BILAYER TABLETS A REVIEW OF NOVEL APPROACH
Future potential for sustained release bilayer floating tablets
Drug release is the major area in the pharmaceutical research work. Through sustained release bilayer floating tablets release can be increased up to 24 hours for drugs incompatible with effervescent floating components, hence this system finds greater advantages over single layer effervescent floating tablets in terms of stability. It is also beneficial in providing gastric retention thereby increasing gastric emptying time as well as increasing bioavailability and reducing dosing frequency which provides better patient compliance. It provides a great opportunity in case of herbal drugs as these drugs can also be given in sustained release effervescent floating bilayer dosage form which provides greater stability to the formulation. Drugs having narrow absorption window such as anti-viral, antibiotic and antifungal can also be given in sustained release floating bilayer dosage form.
