Bilayer tablet is a new era for successful development of controlled release formulation along with various features to provide successful delivery system for drug in the body. The delivery system formulated with an approach of Bilayer tablet is much more efficient than the traditionally used oral dosage form. So use of bilayer tablet is a very unique approach for anti-inflammatory and analgesic. The concept of bilayer tablet can be an option for diminishing the incompatibilities between Active pharmaceutical ingredients and to enable the development of release profiles. Bilayer tablet permits the release of two drugs in combination and also aids for the sustained release of tablet in which one layer is for immediate release as loading dose and composition of maintenance dose as second layer. In this article we had tried to provide an introduction to bilayer tablet technology, quality and GMP requirements for their production and various techniques used for bilayer tablet production.
