The candesartan cilexetil floating matrix drug delivery system was design to prolong the gastric residence time and improve its bioavailability. The candesartan cilexetil floating matrix tablet was prepared by using direct compression technique. Various natural polymer such as xanthan gum, guar gum as well as synthetic polymer such as hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose used in combination along with other standard excipients. Here, sodium bicarbonate acts as gas-generating agent. The granules undergoes through pre and post compression studies. The tablet evaluated by using various evaluating parameter viz, hardness, friability, weight variation, content uniformity, floating capacity and in vitro drug release studies.
