Formulation and Evaluation of Novel Formulation for Diabetes Induced Hypertension using Modified Innate Superdisintegrant
Objectives: Diabetes is a chronic disease and is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by high levels of sugar in blood (hyperglycemia). Hypertension is a major modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients with diabetes. The objective of this research is to formulate Fast dissolving tablets of Pioglitazone and Cilnidipine for the effective treatment of diabetes induced hypertension.
Methods: Six formulations were prepared by direct compression technique by using Opuntia ficus-indica as an innate superdisintegrant.
Result and Discussion: All the formulations were subjected for precomprression, post compression parameters and shows all the data within the specific limits. F5 formulation with the mixture of polymers viz. Opuntia ficus indica, SSG, croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate, DiCOM showed comparatively fast disintegration and best release of drug than that of all other formulation. The tablets of F5 formulation disintegrated within 18.53 seconds can provide fast relief in the body. The in-vitro dissolution results revealed that the drug release of F5 formulation tablets was more than 90% for Pioglitazone and near to 70% for Cilnidipine within 30 minutes. Stability studies were performed on F5 formulation tablets showed no significant changes in color, disintegration time and in-vitro dissolution which showed that appearance of tablets was having no effect.
Conclusion: Fast dissolving tablets of Pioglitazone and Cilnidipine can be successfully prepared using direct compression technique and it will enhance the drug dissolution, which will further increase absorption and bioavailability of both drugs.
Keywords: Pioglitazone, Cilnidipine, diabetes induced hypertension, fast dissolving tablets, direct compression.
