The main interest was for the development of new dosage forms and the effect of different concentration on the in-vitro release. At the outset, estimation of drug by UV spectrophotometer was carried out. The possible interaction between the drug and excipient can be studied by FTIR spectroscopy. Lozenges could be successfully prepared by fusion method using sucrose, liquid glucose, aspartame, sucrose, dextrose, flavor and color. In-vitro release rate studies showed that the drug release for lozenges was maximum in formulation F1. And at end the drug content is compared with the marketed 75mg tablet which was found to be obtained in F1.
