Development and Validation of Stability Indicating Method for Minoxidil and Finasteride in its Pharmaceutical Dosage Form
Patel, P.D., Surti, N.I., Upadhyay, U.M.
A simple, accurate, precise and specific RPHPLC method has been developed and validated for simultaneous estimation of Finasteride and Minoxidil in its Pharmaceutical dosage form. RPHPLC method was optimized on Hypersil BDS C-18, 250mm x 4.6mm, 5µ particle size with mobile phase Phosphate Buffer (pH 7) : ACN in ratio of (80:20 v/v) and pH 7 adjusted with 1 M NaOH. The mobile phase at flow rate of 1.0 ml/min, Injection volume 20µl and detection wavelength was kept 216 nm. The retention time for Finasteride and Minoxidil was 2.95±0.1 min and 5.74±0.1 min respectively. The linearity was observed in the concentration range of 0.50 to 1.50 mcg/ml and 25 to 75 mcg/ml with correlation coefficient of 0.997 and 0.999 for Finasteride and Minoxidil respectively. The % degradation during force degradation was found to be 10 to 50 % for both Finasteride and Minoxidil in the given condition using developed RP- HPLC method.
