Thus, the development of sustained-release forms, as microparticle suspensions, is interesting in order to improve patient compliance by reducing dosing frequencies and side effects. The aim of this work was to compare different formulations of fludrocortisone microparticles for the treatment of mineralocorticoid insufficiency. The study was done with different polymers (poly(epsilon-caprolactone), Eudragit RS and Eudragit RL) and differ…
