The purpose of this study was to establish the manufacturing method of the formulated bilayer caplets containing the hydroxypropylmethylcellulose 2208 (HPMC2208) matrix without lamination. In manufacturing the bilayer caplets containing the HPMC2208 (Metolose 90SH4000) matrix, some bilayer caplets were cracked. We found that cracking of bilayer caplets is… CONTINUE READING
