Claims for Patent: 8,747,902

Title:Modified release formulations containing drug-ion exchange resin complexes
Abstract: An aqueous liquid suspension containing a coated drug-ion exchange resin complex comprising a core composed of an amphetamine complexed with a pharmaceutically acceptable ion-exchange resin and an uncoated amphetamine-ion exchange resin complex is provided. The coated amphetamine-ion exchange resin complex is in admixture with a polymer to form a matrix. Methods of making the coated complex and the liquid suspension are described.
