A simple and precise and accurate analytical method was developed for The Simultaneous Estimation Of Levocetirizine And Phenylephrine  In Bulk And Pharmaceutical Dosage Form, the analytical columm Eclipse Plus C18, 4.6 mm × 150 mm, (5 µm) ,Mobile phase consisting of Methanol: Water (50:50 iv/v) was used in isocratic mode. The mobile phase was initially filtered through 0.45μm millipore membrane filter and sonicated for 15 min before use. The flow rate was maintained at 1 mL/min, and the injection volume was 20μL. UV detection was performed at 277 nm, and the separation was achieved at ambient temperature.The retention time Rt in (min)for Levocetirizine and Phenylephrine 3.37 min and 6.40 min respectively . The linearity of the method was determined in the concentration range of 5-25µg/mL for Levocetirizine and 2.5-12.5µg/mL for Phenylephrine.
