The present study reports the dissolution method for a novel fixed dose combination (FDC) containing etodolac (ET) and propranolol hydrochloride (PH) developed utilizing USP Apparatus 1 (basket) at 100 rpm with 1000 mL of phosphate buffer (pH 6.8; 0.05 M) medium at 37°C. An isocratic reversed-phase liquid chromatographic (RPLC) method was also developed for the simultaneous determination of ET and PH on an octadecylsilica column using phosphate buffer (pH 5.5) and acetonitrile (60:40, υ/υ) as the mobile phase with ultraviolet (UV) detection at 292 nm. Validation data were obtained, which demonstrated that the dissolution methodology is accurate, precise, linear, and rugged for the combination tablets.
