A pulse has to be designed in such a way that a complete and rapid drug release is achieved after the lag time so as to match body’s circadian rhythms with the release of drug which increases the efficacy and safety of drugs by proportioning their peak plasma concentrations during the 24 hours in synchrony with biological rhythm. The aim of this review is to describe several types of drug delivery systems. The data include rational behind the use of chronotherapeutic release of drug and application in various diseases and prerequisites of drug for pulsatile drug delivery system.
