According to the USP methods, amitriptyline hydrochloride conatin no less than 99% and no more than 100.5% of amitriptyline. The USP HPLC method for the separation of amitriptyline was developed on Legacy L1 column according to the US Pharmacopeia methodology. L1 classification is assigned to reversed-phase HPLC column containing C18 ligand. Support for the material is spherical silica gel with particles size 3-10 um and pore size of 100-120A. Resolution between critical pairs corresponds to rules and specifications of USP.
