Hi Helmut
your statement only holds true in your example with different strengths. If you have only one or the highest IR strength then my statement applies. The once daily (or 8 h) dosing of the ER formulation does not have to mimicry the performance of the multiple dosing of the IR formulation if you can show that there is a well-defined therapeutic window in terms of safety and efficacy and the rate of input is known not to influence the safety and efficacy profile or the risk for tolerance development.
