Megestrol drug is a synthetic steroid progesterone, and it is used as an anti-plasma agent to treat advanced breast cancer or endometriosis. In this study, for determination of megestrol drug in solution using kinetic spectrophotometric method, we prepared a solution of Origanum majoranacapped AgNPs utilizing sodium borohydride as a stabilizer sensor. The calibration curve was linear in the range of (0.01 to 10.0 µg L−1). The standard deviation of (1.8%), and detection limit of the method (0.023 µg L−1 in time 8 min, 345 nm) were obtained for Sensor level response Origanum majorana-capped AgNPs with (95%) confidence evaluated. The observed outcomes confirmed the suitability recovery and a very low detection limit for measuring the megestrol drug. The method introduced to measure megestrol drug in real samples such as urine and blood was used and can be used for other drugs and hospital samples.
