Abstract Two methods for simultaneous estimation of hydrochlorothiazide and olmesartan medoxomil in combined tablet dosage form have been developed. The first method is the application of Q-analysis method (absorbance ratio), which involves the formation of Q-absorbance equation at 264 nm (isobestic point) and at 271 nm, the maximum absorption of hydrochlorothiazide. The linearity ranges for hydrochlorothiazide and olmesartan medoxomil were 2.5-22.5 mug/ml and 4-36 mug/ml, respectively. The second method is based on the derivative spectrophotometric method at zero crossing wavelengths. The linearity ranges for hydrochlorothiazide and olmesartan medoxomil were 2.5-20 mug/ml and 4-32 mug/ml, respectively. The accuracy of the methods were assessed by recovery studies and was found to be 100.45\% +/-0.4215 and 100.24\% +/-0.3783 for absorbance ratio method and 99.39\% +/-0.221 and 99.72\% +/-0.11 for first derivative method, for hydrochlorothiazide and olmesartan medoxomil, respectively. These methods are simple, accurate and rapid, those require no preliminary separation and can therefore be used for routine analysis of both drugs in quality control laboratories.
