Tablets were prepared after preformulation studies and tablets were evaluated by using Weight variation, Hardness, Friability, Thickness and Disintegration Time.

Results: Prepared granules by wet granulation method were performed preformulation studies based on the preformulation studies powder flow properties are good and Weight variation was ± 5%, Hardness, Friability are respectively 3.5 ± 0.43 kg/cm2, 0.58 ± 0.05%. Thickness was measured as 3 ± 0.02 mm and Disintegration time 6 ± 0.32 min are good.

Discussion and Conclusion: Now a day’s Herbal medicines plays major role in the treatment than allopathic medicines because of less toxicity. Momordica charantia, Mangifera indica, Carica papaya, Syzygium cumini ethanolic extracts were used to formulate tablets.
