Principles of controlled drug delivery are the release of the drug in a controlled manner for prolong period. These types of dosage forms need were to maintain the drug concentration for a long period. The treatment of disease states has traditionally involved the use of multiple daily dosing of a therapeutic agent using a conventional dosage form, e.g., tablets. The development of such systems is the role of pharmaceutical polymers. In light of the current and continuing importance of this category of drug delivery system, the following section provides a concise overview of the range of designs of controlled release drug delivery systems. The controlled or sustained drug delivery systems, required the drug is homogeneously dispersed, either at the molecular scale or as solid particles, within a carrier system. The most usual using oral dosage form, like matrix tablets therefore in this review we are discussed matrix tablets. The matrix tablet formulations are affected by various factors that affected the release rate of drugs through the oral drug delivery Systems. This information can be very valuable for the development of such type of formulation.
