A controlled release drug, which is also called a time release drug, is any type of pill that has been engineered to release the medication inside slowly rather than all at once. This technology has been available since the 1960s and makes it possible for patients to take certain types of medication less frequently.

This form of controlled-release medication is used when dealing with harsh gastric environments, biological tolerance and chronopharmacological diseases. Extended-release drugs, also known as sustained-release drugs and long-acting drugs, are another type of controlled-release medication. These drugs extend drug release to maintain a constant level of medication within the body. An advantage of this type of drug delivery is the elimination of drug burst. Extended-release drugs are most ...

Controlled release drug delivery employs drug-encapsulating devices from which therapeutic agents may be released at controlled rates for long periods of time, ranging from days to months. Such systems offer numerous advantages over traditional methods of drug delivery, including tailoring of drug release rates, protection of fragile

A distinction of controlled release is that not only it prolongs action but it attempts to maintain drug levels within the therapeutic window to avoid potentially hazardous peaks in drug concentration following ingestion or injection and to maximize therapeutic efficiency.

When the system successfully to maintain constant levels of drugs in the target tissue or blood, it is called a controlled-release system. The controlled release dosage form is that which delivers the medicaments at a predetermined rate for a prescribed period. The controlled release drug delivery system uses drug encapsulating devices that allow the release of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) at controlled rates over long periods; it can be from days to months.
