Arun Kumar Pandey*., Pavan Kumar Rawat.,C.K.Tyagi.,Sunil Shah
Rapidly disintegrating oral tablet are gaining popularity over conventional tablets due to their convenience in administration and suitability for patients having dysphagia. Moreoverno water is required for swallowing the tablets and hence suitable for geriatric, pediatric and traveling patients. Superdisintegrants like 4 % & 8 % (Croscarmellose Sodium, Crospovidone and sodium starch glycolate), Binder (Povidone K-30), Diluent (Starlac) along with sweetening agent (aspartame) were used in the formulation of tablets by direct compression technique. The granules were evaluated for angle of repose, bulk density, tapped density, carrís index and hausnerís ratio. The tablets were evaluated for hardness, friability, water absorption ratio, in-vitro disintegration time (DT) and in vitro drug release. In-vitro release studies were performed using USP XXIII apparatus-2 (paddle method) in 900ml of pH 1.2 at 50rpm. Maximum % drug release (97.82 %) and minimum disintegration time (23.67 second) were observed with for-mulation F3 comprising of crospovidone prepared by direct compression technique.
