FORMULATION AND IN-VITRO CHARACTERIZATION OF SUSTAINED RELEASE MATRIX TABLET OF DEXIBUPROFENAbstract
Dexibuprofen is a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug. It indicated short-term management of mild to moderately severe acute pain, dental pain, dysmenorrhoea, muscular pain and osteoarthritis. In the prevailing work, studies have been carried out on the preparation and in-vitro characterization of matrix tablets of dexibuprofen using different polymers like hydrophilic and hydrophobic. Different formulations had been prepared by wet granulation method using various release retarding polymers like methylcellulose, xanthan gum, and sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. Water-soluble surfactant sodium lauryl sulfate was employed to enhance the solubility of the dexibuprofen. Drug-excipients compatibility became performed by way of FTIR. Different parameters were evaluated for hardness, thickness, friability, drug content material, and in-vitro drug release. The excellent consequences were determined in terms of physicochemical parameters. The 10 numbers of formulations have been discovered to display the highest drug release of the drug. Mathematical analysis of the release kinetics has been accomplished to determine the mechanism of drug release. In-vitro release records have been fitted into diverse models to envision the kinetic of drug release.
