Recent  technological  and  scientific  research  has  been  devoted  to  the  development  of  rate  controlled  drug  delivery  systems  to  overcome  physiological  adversities  such as short  gastric residence  times and unpredictable  gastric  emptying times. The concept behind the development of novel delivery system in certain drawback of conventional dosages form and to overcome the certain aspect related to physicochemical properties of drug molecule and related the formulation development. Controlled release floating drug delivery system is a promising delivery system for a drug candidate having limited absorption window sparingly soluble and insoluble drugs, drugs those locally release in stomach and shows degradability in colon or poor colonic absorption. Floating drug delivery system comes under a gastro-retentive drug delivery system that provides continuous controlled administration of sparingly soluble drugs at the absorption site. This review entitled the detailed scenario related to floating drug delivery system with their advantages over the conventional drug delivery system and also limitation, which are helpful in development of dosages form.
