The main objective of this study was to formulate and evaluate of Bio-adhesive pulsatile drug delivery system of Telmisartan, an anti-hypertensive drug in order to achieve better therapeutic efficacy and patient compliance. The approach of combination of bio-adhesive pulsatile formulation is suitable for gastro retention and time specific drug delivery. The study was carried by preparation of fast disintegrating core tablet followed by incorporation of core tablet to design bio-adhesive

The formulation was evaluated for precompression and post compression parameters, lag time, drug release and bio-adhesive study. All evaluation parameters were found within limits. The lag time expected for this disease was 8 hours as need of drug release for this disease was more likely to act in early morning. The 8 hour lag time was obtained in optimized formulation which has shown muco-adhesion for the same period. Thus bio-adhesive pulsatile drug delivery system could be the best precautionary alternative for the drugs having maximum absorption in stomach and used for diseases which follows circadian rhythm.
