Over the years, different formulation technologies for gastroretentive dosage delivery were investigated and patented. Well-designed controlled drug delivery system can overcome the problems of conventional therapy and enhance the therapeutic efficacy of a drug. There are various approaches in delivering a therapeutic substance to target site in a sustained controlled release fashion. One such approach is using multiparticulate as carriers for drugs. Such systems have advantages over single-unit dosage forms as they avoid the all-or-none gastric emptying nature of single-unit systems. However, multiparticulate dosage forms are gaining favor because of potential benefits like predictable gastric emptying, no risk of dose dumping, flexible release patterns and increased bioavailability with less inter- and intra-subject variability. The purpose of writing this review on method of prepare floating multiparticulate is to compile the recent literature with special focus on the classification and formulation aspects, principal mechanism of floatation to achieve gastric retention, characterization of floating multiparticulate system.

Keywords- multiparticulate system, design and method of preparation, floating microspheres, beads, granules.
