Title:Encased tamper resistant controlled release dosage forms
Abstract: In certain embodiments, the present invention is directed to a solid controlled release dosage form comprising: a core comprising a first portion of an opioid analgesic dispersed in a first matrix material; and a shell encasing the core and comprising a second portion of the opioid analgesic dispersed in a second matrix material; wherein the amount of opioid analgesic released from the dosage form is proportional within 20% to elapsed time from 8 to 24 hours, as measured by an in-vitro dissolution in a USP Apparatus 1 (basket) at 100 rpm in 900 ml simulated gastric fluid without enzymes (SGF) at 37 C.

C.; and the dosage form can be flattened without breaking, wherein the thickness of the dosage form after flattening corresponds to no more than about 20% of the thickness of the dosage form before flattening; and the amount of hydrocodone or salt thereof released at 0.5 hour from a flattened dosage form deviates no more than about 20% points from a non-flattened dosage form as measured by an in-vitro dissolution in a USP Apparatus 1 (basket) at 100 rpm in 900 ml simulated gastric fluid without enzymes (SGF) at 37.degree. C.

2. A method of preparing a solid controlled release dosage form comprising: granulating hydrocodone or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof with pharmaceutically acceptable excipients to form a granulate; incorporating a therapeutically effective amount of the granulate and a controlled release material in a dosage form comprising a core and a shell; wherein the core and the shell each comprise an amount of the granulate; wherein the amount of hydrocodone or salt thereof released from the dosage form at 2 hours is less than about 25%; the amount of hydrocodone or salt thereof released from the dosage form at 4 hours is from about 10% to about 30%; the amount of hydrocodone or salt thereof released from the dosage form at 8 hours is from about 20% to about 60%; the amount of hydrocodone or salt thereof released from the dosage form at 12 hours is from about 40% to about 90%; and the amount of hydrocodone or salt thereof released from the dosage form at 18 hours is greater than about 70%, as measured by an in-vitro dissolution in a USP Apparatus 1 (basket) at 100 rpm in 900 ml simulated gastric fluid without enzymes (SGF) at 37.degree. C.; and the dosage form can be flattened without breaking, wherein the thickness of the dosage form after flattening corresponds to no more than about 20% of the thickness of the dosage form before flattening; and the amount of hydrocodone or salt thereof released at 0.5 hour from a flattened dosage form deviates no more than about 20% points from a non-flattened dosage form as measured by an in-vitro dissolution in a USP Apparatus 1 (basket) at 100 rpm in 900 ml simulated gastric fluid without enzymes (SGF) at 37.degree. C.; and wherein the amount of hydrocodone or salt thereof released from the dosage form is proportional within 20% to elapsed time, at any two time points from 8 to 24 hours, as measured by an in-vitro dissolution in a USP Apparatus 1 (basket) at 100 rpm in 900 ml simulated gastric fluid without enzymes (SGF) at 37.degree. C.

3. A method of preparing a solid controlled release dosage form comprising: dispersing hydrocodone or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof in a controlled release excipient to form a blend; compressing a therapeutically effective amount of the blend to form a dosage form wherein the inner 60% of the dosage form contains 80% to less than 100% of the hydrocodone or salt thereof; wherein the amount of hydrocodone or salt thereof released from the dosage form is proportional within 20% to elapsed time from 8 to 24 hours, as measured by an in-vitro dissolution in a USP Apparatus 1 (basket) at 100 rpm in 900 ml simulated gastric fluid without enzymes (SGF) at 37.degree. C.
