Formulation, Optimization and Evaluation of Bilayer Tablet of Antihypertensive Drug
Hypertension or high blood pressure occurs when the high cardiac output exerts pressure on the arterial wall as the blood flow increases. Bi-layer tablets are prepared with one layer of drug for immediate release while second layer designed to release drug later, either as second dose or in an extended release manner. Bi-layered tablet is suitable for sequential release of two drugs in combination, separate two incompatible substances, and also for sustained release tablet in which one layer is immediate release as initial dose and second layer is maintenance dose. Bilayer tablet is suitable for sequential release of two drugs in combination, separate two incompatible substances and also for sustained release tablet in which one Layer is immediate release as initial dose and second layer is maintenance dose. The preparation of tablets in the form of multi layers is used to provide systems for the administration of drugs.
