Time release technology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pharmaceutical companies that do not supply a range of half-dose and quarter-dose versions of time-release tablets can make it difficult for patients to be slowly 'weaned off' their drugs.

Time release technology (also known as sustained-release, extended-release, controlled-release, and other synonyms or near-synonyms ) is a mechanism used in pill tablets or capsules to dissolve a drug over time in order to be released slower and steadier into the bloodstream while having the advantage of being taken at less frequent intervals than immediate-release ( IR ) formulations of the same drug.

Micro-encapsulation is also regarded as a more complete technology to produce complex dissolution profiles.

Understanding Extended-Release Medications

We're often asked questions about extended-release medications and how Q: Why can't I cut extended-release tablets in half if I my pain is less some days?.

The mechanisms by which extended-release medications are released into the body vary according to the medication. If you want to know more details about the specific mechanism used in a particular medication, ask your pharmacist. The important thing to know is that the medication is gradually released into your body so that it remains at a more constant level throughout the day. In the case of pain medications, this can be a good way to provide more consistent pain relief around the clock without the peaks and valleys often experienced when regular tablets are taken every four to six hours.

CR – constant release, continuous release or controlled release.

A: Several different acronyms may be used to indicate a medication is extended-release.
