The aim of such sustained-release preparations is to release a steady ‘infusion’ of drug into the gut lumen for absorption during transit through the small intestine. g. carbamazepine), reduce adverse effects linked to high peak plasma concentrations. Absorption of such preparations is often incomplete, so it is especially important that bioavailability is established and substitution of one preparation for another may lead to clinical problems.

Carbamazepine), reduce adverse effects linked to high peak plasma concentrations. Absorption of such preparations is often incomplete, so it is especially important that bioavailability is established and substitution of one preparation for another may lead to clinical problems. Other limitations of slow-release preparations are: 1. Transit time through the small intestine is about six hours, so once daily dosing may lead to unacceptably low trough concentrations. 2. If the gut lumen is narrowed or intestinal transit is slow, as in the elderly, or due to other drugs (tricyclic antidepressants, opiates), there is a danger of high local drug concentrations causing mucosal damage.
