Crystalline state compounds are typically dissolution rate limited and dissolution rate is directly proportional to the solubility for BCS class II or class IV compounds. Solid dispersions are one of the most promising strategies to improve the oral bioavailability poorly water soluble drugs. The purpose of this study was to increase solubility of carvedilol by solid dispersion (SDs) technique with Poloxamer (PXM) 407 in aqueous media. The carvedilol- PXM 407 solid dispersion was prepared by solvent evaporation, kneading and melting method. It was characterized by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), Fourier transformation infra-red spectroscopy (FT-IR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and in vitro dissolution studies. The prepared solid dispersion were found to have higher dissolution rates as compared to intact carvedilol. During formulation of solid dispersion crystalline to amorphous transition has been observed.
