Author: Imam, HA; Kariem, EAG
Abstract: Many complaints have been made by Sudanese doctors about the lack of effectiveness of some common medicinal products in spite of their labeled manufacturer’s shelf life being still valid. It is crucial to examine the effect of actualstorage conditions in Sudan on stability of the different dosage forms of drugs circulated in the Sudanese market. Dexamethasone was the drug examineded in this study. It is a life saving drug used as a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic. Dexamethasone is found in different dosage forms in Sudan (tablets, injections, oral solutions and ointments) which are stable in normal controlled room temperature but if they are exposed to drastic conditions they may show changes due to instability.
