The present study was carried out to develop Fast Disintegration Tablets of Cimetidine. Kollidon, Vivasol, Tulsion 330 powder were used as Super Disintegrants. The blend of all the formulations showed good flow properties such as angle of repose, bulk density, tapped density. The prepared tablets were shown good post compression parameters and they passed all the quality control evaluation parameters as per I.P limits. Among all the formulations F7 formulation showed maximum % drug release i.e., 98.62% in 60 min hence it is considered as optimised formulation.

Key words Cimetidine, Kollidon, Vivasol, Tulsion 330 and Fast Disintegration tablets.
