13. DETERMINATION OF THE QUALITY CONTROL PARAMETERS OF PARACETAMOL TABLETS IN INDIAN PHARMACEUTICAL MARKET
As drugs have to be marketed as safe and therapeutically active formulations with consistent and predictable outcomes, the quality of any pharmaceutical product is very important. Assessment of the physiochemical properties of pharmaceutical products will ensure the quality and bioavailability of pharmaceutical products and provide maximum therapeutic effectiveness. Paracetamol tablets were selected for this comparative study because they are widely used worldwide to treat moderate to severe pain and fever. This is one of several Indian pharmaceutical firms that typically manufacture and distribute medications. The study aims to compare the different physical parameters for quality assessment and tablet characterization of five different brands of Indian pharmaceutical companies, including weight variation, stiffness, friability, and time of disintegration. The indicated compendial approach was adopted for their assessment test.
