A simple, fast, accurate and precise reverse phase HPLC method is developed and described for the determination of ramelteon in tablet dosage form. Chromatography was carried on an ODS column using a mixture of acetonitrile and phosphate buffer pH 7.0 (35:65 V/V) as the mobile phase at a flow rate of 1.0 mL/min with detection at 286 nm. The retention time of the drug was 7.7 min. The procedure was validated for linearity, precision, accuracy, and robustness. The developed method was validated for linearity from 50 to 150% which shows the method is quite linear with a correlation coefficient of 0.999, for precision which includes system precision, method precision, intraday and by another analyst on another day, and accuracy. The %RSD for system precision was observed to be 1.1, whereas the method precision was observed to be 0.2. The % recovery from ‘accuracy' studies yielded the recovery of 99.7-101.5% which indicates the capability of the method, and finally for robustness that includes studies w.r.t. change in flow rate, the percentage of organic modifier and pH. As per ICH guidelines, method validation results are in good agreement. The proposed method was simple, sensitive, precise and accurate.
