As pressure increases in the osmotic layer, it pumps the drug solution out of the delivery orifice at a constant rate of about one to two drops per hour. Comparative single-dose pharmacokinetics of sustained-release and modified-release morphine sulfate capsules under fed and fasting conditions. As water is absorbed into the outer layers, the tablet begins to swell and gradually break down.

The resultant solution then diffuses out in a predetermined manner, prolonging the in vivo dissolution and absorption phases. Pharmacokinetics of sustained release morphine. The two retarding ingredients are ammonio-methacrylate copolymer, a water-insoluble polymer, and stearyl alcohol, a water-insoluble wax.

There are substantial differences in the pharmacokinetics of opioid following the administration of the various modified-release opioid formulations. Therefore, Purdue Pharma has not conducted an in vivo study to assess the madian of alcohol on morphine release from MSContin tablets or OxyContin tablets in human subjects.

Both the PEG and methacrylic acid copolymer are water-soluble, but the water solubility of the methacrylic acid copolymer is pacmage.

However, the observed absorption profile for OxyContin could be accurately described mathematically as the sum of two exponential terms i. For example, a low degree of crosslinking between the polymer chains is likely to cause valves insdrt be open, as there will be a large number of less tortuous channels in the gel. Effect of pafkage ingestion of alcohol on the in vivo pharmacokinetics of KADIAN morphine sulfate extended-release capsules. Avinza ER capsules contain morphine sulfate in both immediate and ER beads [3].

These in vitro dissolution studies show that exposure to alcohol does not increase the rate at which morphine is released from MSContin tablets or at which oxycodone is released from OxyContin.


Fluid in the GI tract diffuses through the outer polymer coat to dissolve the opioid after enteral administration; the nature of the inert core together with the composition and thickness of the coat combine to control the rate of dissolution. Although all CR products may be taken without regard to meals, they are sensitive to alterations that destroy their modified-release mechanisms.

In matrix-type modified-release drug delivery systems, the active ingredient and retarding ingredients are uniformly distributed throughout the dosage form. The center core reduces slightly as some of the drug is released. It has a plasma concentration-time curve that is relatively flat and smooth [14]. During product development, results indicated that consuming ethanol while taking Palladone disrupted the modified-release mechanism of the product and resulted in the absorption of a potentially fatal dose of hydromorphone [21].

Interactions between these compounds in an aqueous environment form a tight gel with a slowly eroding core.

MSContin CR tablets contain morphine sulfate in a dual-control polymer matrix Contin that consists of a hydrophilic polymer hydroxypropyl methylcellulose and a hydrophobic polymer hydroxyethyl cellulose [9]. Further, these in vitro dissolution studies demonstrate that the rate at which morphine is released from MSContin tablets or at which oxycodone is released from OxyContin tablets actually decreases as the concentration of alcohol is increased [7]. Multiple formulations adsorb opioid onto a hydrophilic polymer e.

Only the drug solution not the undissolved drug is capable of leaving through the small delivery orifice. This thickening property of xanthan is made use of in other pharmaceutical products to prepare sugar-free syrups and results from a reversible dimerisation of xanthan molecules.

KADIAN – Morphine Sulfate Extended-Release Capsules

The oxycodone in an OxyContin tablet is contained in a homogenous mixture of the active drug oxycodone and retardants, that is, there are not two separate components to a tablet OxyContin does not contain a separate immediate-release component [7]. This produces a three-dimensional interlocking network of LBG molecules in water [1]. In Julythe FDA advised Purdue that the risk of alcohol interaction cannot be adequately managed with warnings alone, and, at the request of the FDA, Purdue suspended all marketing and sales of Palladone [21].

An appreciation of these various delivery systems may provide clinicians with the knowledge to feel comfortable utilizing multiple different opioid CR formulations in their practices in efforts to optimize patient analgesia while minimizing adverse effects. Conversion from standard opioid therapy to once-daily oral extended-release hydromorphone in patients with chronic cancer pain.


The pellets are similar in general structure to the ER beads in Avinza Figure 1. The semi-permeable membrane permits water to enter from the patient’s stomach into the core tablet when the tablet is swallowed, thereby dissolving or suspending the drug. A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. The core table has two layers, one containing the drug the active layer and the other containing a polymeric osmotic agent the push layerwhich operates on the principle of osmotic pressure.

SODAS is a multiparticulate drug delivery technology based on the production of CR uniform spherical beads of 1—2 mm in diameter. The depth of the kadizn layer increases over time as the gastric fluid gains access to the deeper regions of the tablet [2]. Synergistically interacting heterodisperse polysaccharides-function in achieving controllable drug delivery.

The modeling indicates that absorption from a dose of an immediate-release oxycodone solution will be essentially complete approximately 1. As the pellets enter and move through the intestines, the pH of the GI environment continues to increase, and the methacrylic acid copolymer begins to dissolve as the PEG continues its dissolution. The results indicate that the CR properties of this formulation are maintained in the presence of alcohol kadiqn.

Therefore, these products should be swallowed whole i. Intuitively, these differences would be expected to translate into measurable differences in opioid pharmacodynamic effects of pain relief and the incidence and severity of adverse effects.

The rate of drug release from this formulation depends on the rate of diffusion of the dissolved opioid through the gel layer at the surface of the tablet. The applesauce innsert be room temperature or cooler, and the entire amount should be consumed without chewing, followed by kadina and swallowing with water to ensure that all beads are ingested. The retardants control the rate of release of the active ingredient oxycodone, in the case of OxyContin from the tablet matrix [8].
