The present research work support formulation design and evaluation of novel bucco-adhesive thin tablets. This is novel formula contain clotrimazole as an active pharmaceutical ingredient and Eudragit RLPO, carbomer934, PVP K 30 as polymer. Sustained release thin tablet were obtained by direct compression method with high pressure. The tablets were evaluated for applicable parameter as color, odor, taste, size, shape, drug content, weight variation test, swelling index, surface pH, bio-adhesive strength and in vitro release. All the formulation was optimized with respect to bio-adhesive strength and in vitro release rate. The formula F3 containing 10mg Eudragit RLPO, 20mg PVP K30 and 60mg carbomer 934 is found to be suitable for buccal drug delivery system. The optimized formula is appearing as white, thin, suitable, applicable, acceptable and elegant.
