CVM Institute for Degree Course in Pharmacy, New Vallabh Vidya Nagar, Anand, (Gujarat) The aim of present investigation was to design ’Traveler Friendly Drug Delivery System’ of Ondansetron HCl. Conventional tablet of Ondansetron HCl are not capable of rapid action and water is also needed. Tablets were formulated by direct compression using mannitol, superdisintegrants and camphor, whereby camphor, a subliming material, is removed by sublimation from compressed tablets. Tablets prepared with camphor (20%) and Ac-Di-Sol (6%) exhibited disintegration time (21 s) and friability (0.49%). Further to decrease the disintegration time and friability aerosol (0.5%) is used as lubricant, which gives least disintegration time (19 s) and friability (0.32 %).
