This research work was aimed to enhance the oral bioavailability and provide faster onset of action of Prochlorperazine maleate (used for the treatment nausea and vomiting) by formulating its mouth dissolving film (MDF). Prochlorperazine belongs to BCS II and oral bioavailability of it's about 11-15%. The MDF of Prochlorperazine maleate was prepared by solvent casting method using HPMC (film forming agent),Glycerol (plasticizer), Betacyclodextrin (solubilizing agent), Citric acid (saliva

The formulation was optimized by two factors, three levels (32) was used for the formulation optimization of fast dissolving film of Prochlorperazine maleate and experimental trials are performed on all 9 formulation. In which the amount of HPMC, Glycerol were selected as independent variables (factor) varied at three different level: low (-1), medium (0), and high (+1) levels. The drug release and disintegration time used as dependent variables (response). and formulation was evaluated for weight variation, thickness, folding endurance, drug content, in- vitro disintegration, in vitro dissolution study and stability study. Based on results it was concluded that MDF (F3) showed enhanced bioavailability and faster onset of action. Keywords: Prochlorperazine maleate, Mouth dissolving film, bioavailability
