What is controlled release drug?
Q: What is meant by controlled release drug? How it is used as an alternative to hysterectomy?
A:Controlled release drug means that when taken by mouth the release of its ingredients into the stomach and then to the blood is not immediate but slow. Many drugs are produced both as IR (immediate release) and CR (controlled release). Hysterectomy, being a surgical removal of uterus, has nothing to do with CR tablets.
