FORMULATION AND EVALUATION OF EFFERVECENT FLOATING TABLETS OF ANTIDIABETIC DRUG
The aim present investigation is Formulation and Evaluation of Effervescent Floating Tablets of antidiabetic drug. Gastric retention are such systems, which increase the gastric retention time of the dosage forms at the stomach and upper part of the small intestine and suitable for the drug having site-specific absorption from the above sites. The Metformin HCl an orally administered biguanide ofÂ BCS class-3 High solubility and low permeability, which is widely use in the management of and the type-II diabetes, is an oral anti- hyperglycemic agent, shows incomplete absorption from the gastrointestinal tract and from the gastrointestinal track and absolute bioavailability is 50-60%with relatively short plasma half-life of 1.5-4.5 hours. It was using different polymers studying of deferent factors affecting the floating behavior of the prepare tablets was of our goals and important target in this part. Gastro-retentive tablets of Metformin HCl were prepared by wet granulation method using HPMC K200M (Hydroxylpropyl methyl cellulose) micro crystalline cellulose PH 101, sodium bicarbonate, HPMC K100 (LV), Magnesium stearate, colloidal silicon dioxide. In this formulation HPMC K 200 M was using different concentration. The Gastro-retentive tablet of Metformin HCl was evaluation of compression blend Angle of repose, Bulk density, tapped density, Drug compressibility study, Drug release rate, floating lag time etc. Result of our present study suggests that gastro-retentive tablets of Metformin HCl can be successfully designed to develop sustained release drug delivery which can reduce dosing frequency.
