Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to study the effect of disintegrate type on the characteristics of fast disintegrating sublingual tablets. It was also to study the effect of applied pressure on disintegration time. Two tablet formulations, A and B contain polyplasdone and sodium starch glycolate respectively were prepared. Also, tablets from formulation B were prepared at different pressure. Tablets were evaluated for weight variation, content uniformity, thickness, diameter, friability and disintegration time. All tablets were within the European Pharmacopoeia (EP) limits for weight variation and content uniformity. The disintegration time fulfill the EP requirements. The disintegration time of formulation A was faster than formulation B. The applied pressure has a significant effect on tablet disintegration. Polyplasdone is more efficient to promote fast disintegration than starch. The pressure used for tablet preparation should be optimized to meet the required disintegration time for tablet.
