ABSTRACT

The objective of this study was to formulate fast dissolving tablets (FDTs) using superdisintegrant and effervescent material. The tablets were prepared by direct compression method. The effect of superdisintegrant content was studied. The weight and hardness were controlled within the range of 500±20 mg and 50±10 N, respectively. Tableting properties including weight, thickness, diameter, friability, hardness, wetting time, water absorption ratio and in-vitro dispersion time were evaluated. As a result, the physical properties of tablets were within the required limit. As increasing the amount of sodium starch glycolate, the water absorption ratio had a tendency to increase. However, the wetting and dispersion time took more longer. By effect of adding effervescent material (tartaric acid and sodium bicarbonate), the wetting and dispersion time were lower. The time showed less than 3 min that represented a good characteristic of FDTs. This study showed that, among the designed formulations, the
formulation containing effervescent material emerges as the overall best formulation based on drug dissolving characteristics.
