Film of Fentanyl Citrate a narcotic opoid analgesic for cancer breakthrough pain is formulated by solvent casting method using HPMC E15 as a film forming agent, Honey and PEG400 as plasticizers and Sodium Starch Glycolate as superdisintigrant. All the formulations were evaluated on the basis of Tensile strength, %Elongation, in-vitro drug release and folding endurance . Through optimization F3and F6 proved to be best formulation through which formulation with PEG400 proved better than with honey. But honey as plasticizers gives satisfactory result and can be used further for formulating film with natural plasticizer.
