The present work aims to survey, the selected tablets available in the market and study important quality parameters like, Disintegration test (DT) & Weight Variation (WV) as per the Indian pharmacopeia. The major Siddha market samples (Brahmananda Bairavam, Swasa Kudori Mathirai, Santha Chandrodayam, Vasantha Kusumakaram, Murukkanvidai, Vishnu chakram, Kungumapoo, Neerkovai, Balasanjeevi, Lavankathi) purchased from Different manufactures (B1, B2, B3, B4) and the DT (37±2°C, 45±2°C) & WV performed. The results indicate intake of Tablets with slight warm water will improve the tablet disintegration of Brahmananda Bairavam, Swasa Kudori Mathirai, Santha Chandrodayam, Vasantha Kusumakaram, Kungumapoo, Neerkovai, Balasanjeevi, Lavankathi. But there is no impact on Vishnu chakram & Murukkanvidai by using slight warm water.

The results of DT (45°C) of Balasanjeevi (B2, B4), Brahmananda Bairavam(B4), Santha Chandrodayam (B2, B4), Swasa Kudori Mathirai (B1, B2, B4), Vasantha Kusumakaram (B4), Vishnu chakram (B4), Kungumapoo (B2, B4) complies. The results of WV interoperated in statically T-test, Quality Control (±3 s analysis) & the results implicated deviating from the control, specification limits. These tests bring out the errors, misbranded and bad quality of markedly available products & there is a need to improve regulatory standards to ensure the therapeutic and quality goals.
