Purpose: To develop and validate a simple, rapid and inexpensive RP-HPLC method for the simultaneous estimation of paracetamol and meloxicam in tablets.
Methods: For the analysis of the drugs, chromatographic analysis was performed on XTerra symmetry C18 column (100 × 4.6 mm, 5 μ particle size) with mobile phase consisting of methanol and phosphate buffer (pH 9.2) in the ratio of 50:50 v/v, at a flow rate of 0.8 mL/min and eluents monitored at 244 nm. The method was validated for linearity, accuracy, precision, robustness and application for assay as per International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) guidelines.
Results: The retention times of paracetamol and meloxicam were 2.467 and 4.971 min, respectively. The calibration curves of peak area versus concentration, which was linear from 5 - 60 μg/mL for paracetamol and 1 - 12 μg/mL for meloxicam, had regression coefficient (r2) greater than 0.999. The method had the requisite accuracy, precision, and robustness for simultaneous determination of paracetamol and meloxicam in tablets.
Conclusion: The proposed method is simple, low-cost, accurate, precise and can be successfully employed in routine quality control for the simultaneous analysis of paracetamol and meloxicam in tablets.
