A Contemporary Formulation for Quick Action against Pain & Fever

COMPOSITION: Paracetamol 300 mg (IR) + Paracetamol 700 mg (SR) 


Expresso – 1000SR is a fresh constructive formulation which are bilayer tablets prepared by combining an immediate release layer of paracetamol and a sustained release layer of paracetamol.

Immediate Release Paracetamol & Sustained Release Paracetamol

  • The immediate release (IR) component releases within the first fifteen minutes and a sustained release (SR) component releases slowly after 15 minutes.
  • Suitably the sustained release phase comprises a matrix-forming polymer to provide a sustained release of paracetamol.
  • In a randomized study, SR paracetamol taken 3 times daily was statistically and therapeutically non-inferior to IR paracetamol taken 4 times daily in osteoarthritis patients with knee pain. 
  • SR paracetamol may be more convenient for patients with chronic pain and has the potential to enhance compliance and therefore pain relief.
  • The bilayer tablets are prepared for prolonging the patent life of a drug product hence for a good productive release rate.
