In this insight of designing delayed release tablets of imidapril, results were can be conducive as the formulated tablets gave satisfactory results for various physicochemical parameters like
hardness, friability, thickness, weight variation and content uniformity. Here in this study HPMC and cellulose acetate acts as barriers to release the drug after a desired lag time. Imidapril Core in cup tablet shows a delayed release pattern. Out of all the formulations F8 was found to be efficient and it was optimized based on its drug release pattern. It was observed that P4 F8 formulations were found to shows maximum drug release and it was optimized due to its release after a lag time. The physicochemical interactions between the drug and the polymer was studied by the FTIR studies and found to be no interactions.
