the release of a medication is how quickly it is absorbed into the intstine.

certain meds are changed to release slower/quicker into the intestine to help it improve its effectiveness.

like for example, some vitamins are made to be "time released" so it doesnt get absorbed all at once but absorbs over a period of time to improve its effectivness.
