A simple, specific, accurate, precise, rapid and reproducible reverse HPLC method has been developed for the simultaneous estimation of ezetimibe and simvastatin in bulk and tablet dosage forms using C18 column (symmetry, 4.6 mm x 25 cm) in isocratic mode with methanol: water (95:05 v/v) as a mobile phase with the detection wavelength of 248 nm and the flow rate was 0.8 ml/ min. The retention time of ezetimibe and simvastatin was found to 3.2 min and be 4.9 min, respectively. Linearity of the ezetimibe and simvastatin was found in the range of 5-70 µ g/ml and 5 - 50 µ g/ml, respectively. The recoveries of ezetimibe and simvastatin were found to be in the range of 99.27-101.10% and 99.63- 100.50%, respectively. The proposed method was validated suitably and can be used for routine analysis.
