Doxazosin mesylate (DX) is an antihypertensive agent belonging to BCS class II. There is no reported literature available on development of spectrophotometric method for its analysis in bulk and pharmaceutical dosage forms using 0.1N HCl. Thus, attempt was made to develop and validate a new UV spectrophotometric method using 0.1N HCl as the solvent for its quantitative estimation in tablets that would be fast, simple, accurate, and sensitive. DX had a maximum absorbance wavelength of 245 nm and was linear with a correlation coefficient (R2) of 0.9981 across the concentration range of 2-14 µg/mL. The present method was utilized to determine the drug content of two commercial brands namely; brand I and brand II. The estimated amount of DX was 99.13% and 99.02% in these brands, respectively. The proposed method generated results that confirm the label claim and was accurate, precise, sensitive, and rugged during its validation study. The accuracy of the technique was tested using recovery research at three different levels, namely 80%, 100%, 120%, and the percent recovery rate was determined between 98% and 102% suggesting that the proposed approach is accurate. Precision and robustness were within the acceptable limits, complying with ICH standards. The proposed method could be used to quantify DX in API and dosage forms.
