FORMULATION AND EVALUATION OF SUBLINGUAL TABLET CONTAINING ANTIEMETIC DRUG
The aim of the present research is to formulate a sublingual tablet of antiemetic drug. Doxylamine succinate is an antihistaminic commonly used for the prevention and treatment of nausea and vomiting. Oral bioavailability of doxylamine succinate is low and shows extensive hepatic metabolism. The Objective of the present research is to formulate doxylamine succinate sublingual tablet to avoid hepatic first-pass metabolism and to improve its bioavailability. Sublingual route not only overcome the problem of dysphagia but also giving the rapid onset of action by enhancing permeability through site of administration
