Abstract:  Slow-release dosage forms are designed to release active drugs at slower rates for prolonging drug effects. These unconventional dosage forms are complex drug delivery systems, which require specialized technical knowledge and skills in their formulation. Verification of the compounding process for slow-release oral dosage forms can be accomplished through quality-control testing of pilot batches to ensure acceptable preparation and patient safety.
