Extended release besides being convenient, tend to control the problem better at a lower dose because the drug is constant in the body instead of the peaks and valleys of taking several doses a day.

For me the biggest disadvantage is the cost. My insurance won't pay for them, they think they're just a convenience. The can cost more then triple what the short acting drugs do.
