The properties of metronidazole sustained release floating tablets have been studied varying the proportion of the lubricant, stearic acid, on formulations with and without sodium bicarbonate (SB) and Carbopol 971P NF. The matrices were adjusted to obtain a fixed total weight of 600 mg. The variables studied include technological properties of the ..
