OBJECTIVE : Elderly people with dementia are commonly suffered from sleep disorders. So, the use of Donepezil hydrochloride as anti-Alzheimer drug and Trazodone hydrochloride as antidepressants with hypnotic action is very important in these cases. This study reports about novel and sensitive RP-HPLC method with fluorescence detection for simultaneous bioanalytical determination of Donepezil hydrochloride (DON) and co-administered, Trazodone hydrochloride (TRA) in their pure forms, spiked human plasma and tablets. METHODS : Elution of both drugs was achieved with excellent resolution using a RP-C18 Hypersil Gold column and an isocratic mobile phase consisting of phosphate buffer (50mm, pH 4.6): methanol: acetonitrile (60:35:5) with a flow rate of 1.5mL/min and 20μL as injection volume. A Fluorescence detector at 300nm for excitation and 400nm for emission was used. RESULTS : Retention times were 4.3 and 6.3min for Donepezil hydrochloride and Trazodone hydrochloride, respectively. Linearity ranges of the assay were 25-1000 and 50-5000ng/mL and the limits of detection (LOD) and quantitation (LOQ) were 8.52, 15.47 and 25.81, 46.89ng/mL for Donepezil hydrochloride and Trazodone hydrochloride, respectively. CONCLUSIONS : The high sensitivity of the proposed method enabled the successful determination of the cited drugs in spiked human plasma with mean percentage of recoveries of 91.58±3.34 and 100.30±5.11 for Donepezil hydrochloride and Trazodone hydrochloride, respectively.
