Background: As the lamotrigine is poorly water soluble drug. The dug was characterized for different physico-chemical properties and nanosized by solvent evaporation sonication technique.

Aims and Objectives: This research was aimed to reduce the model particle size and evaluate the diffusion study.

Methods: In the research work the bath sonication was done at 250 hertz frequency at room temperature. During sonication 25ml of purified water as added slowly drop by drop till turbidity was observed. The obtained residue was then centrifuged for 30 minutes at 4000 rpm for complete recovery of nanosized drug.

Results: Lamotrigine was found to be very soluble in methanol, soluble in phosphate buffer pH7.4 solution. It was found to be sparingly soluble in 0.1MHCl, phosphate buffer, pH 5.8 solutions. The nanosizing of drug particle was confirmed when the number of sonication cycles was increased up to 15 cycles as optimized, the %transmittance was found to increase proportionally.

Conclusion: This diffusion was in significant amount and confirmed that the nanosized drug easily pass through the biomembrane and can be targeted to desired sites in significant amount.
