Fast disintegrating drug delivery system offers a solution for those patients who are having difficulty in swallowing oral dosage forms. The present paper deals with formulation and evaluation of fast dissolving tablets from selected medicinal plants (Syzygium cuminii (L) skeel, Momordica charantia Linn Cassia auriculata Linn,) roots. A Pharmaceutical dosage form was made by using a novel constituent isolated from above mentioned plant constituents (ScReX-6b, McReX-1.CaReX-4) without and with excipients by direct compression. The tablets were evaluated for in-vivo and in-vitro anti-hyperglycemic activity and in-vitro hardness, friability, weight variation, disintegration time, water absorption ratio, wetting time and in vitro dissolution studies. All the formulations exhibited disintegration time in the range of 12.2 to 27.5 seconds along with rapid in vitro dissolution. It was concluded that the fast dissolving tablets of the poor soluble drug can be formulated by direct compression technique using selective super disintegrants with enhanced dissolution, taste masking and hence ensuring better patient compliance and effective therapy.
