Noscapine was formulated into timed-release microcapsules so as to have the effect of the drug for 8 hours. Nonpariel seeds were chosen as the drug carrier and Eudragit-L and Eudragit-S as coating materials. Uncoated and 12-coated microcapsules were mixed and filled in hard gelatin capsule for the final dosage form.
