Abstract

The aim of present study was to prepare sustained release tablet of Theophylline so as to prolong its elimination time and at the same time to keep cost of the formulation minimum. In this study ethyl cellulose and Eudragit are used in the formulation to sustain the release of Theophylline. Ethyl cellulose and Eudragit are added at the granulation step to form a sustained release coating around each granule. Different batches were designed one after another on trial and error basis to get the optimum drug release upto 12 hours.


Keywords: Theophylline, ethyl cellulose, Eudragit, sustained release, coating, tablet.
