Recent technological and scientific research has been devoted to the development of rate controlled drug delivery systems to overcome physiological adversities such as short gastric residence times and unpredictable gastric emptying times. The floating or hydro-dynamically controlled drug delivery systems are useful in such application. The objective of our review is to compile the recent advancements and developments regarding the novel dosage form i.e. the floating drug delivery systems (FDDS) that can be retained in the stomach for a prolonged period of time and gives therapeutic action in a predetermined manner. In these review article, the various aspects of pharmaceutical floating drug delivery system(FDDS) were compiled together and the target ordinance are specifically the M. Pharm and B Pharm students so that their knowledge towards the subject concern can be enhanced and also at the same time can be motivated towards the publication.
