Pharmaceutical Compounding and Dispensing is a comprehensive guide to producing extemporaneous formulations safely and effectively. This is a modern, detailed and practical book on the theory and practice of extemporaneous compounding and dispensing.
The book covers three core sections:
- the history of compounding
- pharmaceutical forms and their preparation
- product formulae.
Pharmacists have been responsible for compounding medicines for centuries. Although most modern medicines are not compounded in a local pharmacy environment, there are still occasions when it is imperative that pharmacists have this knowledge.
Fully revised and updated, this new edition of Pharmaceutical Compounding and Dispensing is an indispensable reference for pharmacy students and practicing pharmacists.
Videos of dispensing procedures can be viewed with the password from the book.
Pharmaceutical Compounding and Dispensing is also available as an eBook.
