Buccal bioadhesive bilayer tablets of prochlorperazine maleate were designed and formulated by using buccoadhesive polymers such as hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose, Carbopol 934P, and sodium alginate. Physicochemical characteristics like the uniformity of weight, hardness, thickness, surface pH, drug content, swelling index, microenvironment pH, in vitro drug release, and in vivo buccoadhesion time of the prepared tablets were found to be dependent on the type and composition of the buccoadhesive materials used. The effect of bile salts on the permeation was studied through porcine buccal mucosa and it was found that out of three bile salts incorporated (sodium glycholate, sodium taurocholate, and sodium deoxycholate), sodium glycholate enhanced the permeation rate of prochlorperazine maleate by an enhancement factor of 1.37.
