and for in vitro drug release. All the formulations had disintegration time less than 30 s and release maximum amount of drug by 12 min. Formulation containing higher concentration of crospovidone decreases disintegration time and optimize the drug release. The most satisfactory formulation was found to be stable during the stability studies conducted as per ICH guidelines QIC, as it showed no significant changes (P<0.05) in the physicochemical properties, disintegration time and in vitro drug release.
