As pharmaceutical compounding continues to grow, so does the need for a comprehensive book containing the information required for becoming a compounding pharmacist and for establishing a compounding pharmacy.
The Art, Science, and Technology of Pharmaceutical Compounding, 6th Edition has been completely revised and covers all aspects of pharmaceutical compounding. Featured are the regulations, technology, scientific foundation, and clinical consulting aspects of the dosage forms that can be compounded. It also contains example formulas for all dosage forms along with the ingredients, quantities, use of each ingredient, and instructions for preparation. In addition to formulation development including flavoring, sweetening, preservation and compliance and compatibility considerations, quality control, and areas of potential errors are also presented.
More than ever, there is a need for a practical compounding reference that integrates the science and practice of compounding while emphasizing the need for caution, innovation, and patient counseling.
