Abstract

Plan: An analytical method for the estimation of Tegaserod Maleate in bulk drugs and pharmaceutical dosage forms is described.

Prologue: Tegaserod Maleate is the first selective serotonin 5-HT4 receptor partial agonist to improve symptoms of constipation-predominant Irritable Bowel syndrome. The present study aims at the development of simple Spectrophotometric method for the estimation of Tegaserod in dosage forms.

Methodology: The developed method is based on the formation of a purple coloured complex due to the reaction of Tegaserod Maleate with p-Dimethylaminobenzaldehyde reagent, which gave a maximum absorbance at 515 nm.Beer’s law is obeyed over the concentration range of 5-50µg/ml. All the variables were studied to optimize the reaction conditions.

Outcome: The proposed method is simple, fast, accurate and economical and can be used for the routine analysis of Tegaserod in dosage forms.

Keywords: Tegaserod Maleate, p-Dimethylaminobenzaldehyde,Spectrophotometric method
