Claims for Patent: 4,762,709

Title: Liquid prolonged release pharmaceutical formulations containing ionic constituents
Abstract:A formulation of a drug wherein the drug is present as a coated, drug-resin complex suspended in a liquid carrier which carrier also contains a second ionic component bearing the same charge as the coated complexed drug, the second ionic component being present as an uncoated, insoluble drug-resin complex.
Inventor(s): Sheumaker; Jerry L. (Fairport, NY)
Assignee: Pennwalt Corporation (Philadelphia, PA)
Application Number:06/825,681
Patent Claims: 1. A formulation of an ionic drug wherein the drug is present as a component of a coated drug-resin complex suspended in a liquid carrier which carrier also contains a second ionic component bearing the same charge as the coated complexed drug,

the second ionic component being present as a component of an uncoated resin complex,

the resin particle of the coated drug-resin complex being an ion exchange resin having been treated in an amount sufficient to retard its rate of swelling in water with an impregnating agent selected from the group consisting of polyethylene glycol, propylene glycol, mannitol, lactose and methylcellulose, and which treated particle has been subsequently coated with a water-permeable diffusion barrier,

the second ionic component being present in an amount that would disturb the dissolution profile of the coated drug-resin complex if that amount was present in unbound form instead of as a component of an uncoated resin complex, and

the resin of the uncoated resin particle being an ion exchange resin present in an amount that is sufficient to bind the second ionic component but is not so large as to disturb the dissolution profile of the coated drug-resin complex.

2. The formulation of claim 1 wherein the second ionic component is a drug.

3. The formulation of claim 2 wherein the drug in the coated drug-resin complex is codeine.

4. The formulation of claim 3 wherein the second ionic component is chlorpheniramine.

5. The formulation of claim 2 wherein the drug in the coated drug-resin complex is pseudoephedrine.

6. The formulation of claim 5 wherein the second ionic component is chlorpheniramine.

7. The formulation of claim 2 wherein the drug in the coated drug-resin complex is hydrocodone.

8. The formulation of claim 7 wherein the second ionic component is chlorpheniramine.

9. A pharmaceutical composition, comprising:

an ionic drug adsorbed on ion exchange resin particles to form a coated drug-resin complex, said ion exchange resin particles of the coated drug-resin complex having been treated with an impregnating agent selected from the group consisting of polyethylene glycol, propylene glycol, mannitol, lactose and methylcellulose in an amount sufficient to retard the rate of swelling in water and subsequently coated with a water-permeable diffusion barrier;

a second ionic component bearing the same charge as said ionic drug adsorbed on ion exchange resin particles to form a second ionic component-resin complex, said ion exchange resin particles of the second ionic component-resin complex are uncoated; and

a liquid carrier.

10. A pharmaceutical composition according to claim 9 wherein said second ionic component is a drug.

11. A pharmaceutical composition according to claim 10 wherein the ionic drug in the coated-resin complex is codeine.

12. A pharmaceutical composition according to claim 11 wherein the second ionic component is chlorpheniramine.

13. A pharmaceutical composition according to claim 10 wherein the ionic drug in the coated-resin complex is pseudoephedrine.

14. A pharmaceutical composition according to claim 13 wherein the second ionic component is chlorpheniramine.

15. A pharmaceutical composition according to claim 10 wherein the ionic drug in the coated resin complex is pseudoephedrine.

16. A pharmaceutical composition according to claim 15 wherin the second ionic component is chlorpheniramine.

17. A pharmaceutical composition, comprising:

an ionic drug selected from the group consisting of codeine, pseudoephedrine and hydrocodone adsorbed on ion exchange resin particles to form a coated drug-resin complex, said ion exchange resin particles of the coated drug-resin complex having been treated with an impregnating agent selected from the group consisting of polyethylene glycol, propylene glycol, mannitol, lactose and methylcellulose in an amount sufficient to retard the rate of swelling in water and subsequently coated with a water-permeable diffusion barrier;

chlorpheniramine adsorbed on ion exchange resin particles to form a chlorpheniramine-resin complex, said ion exchange resin particles of the chlorpheniramine-resin complex are uncoated; and

a liquid carrier.
