This is a modern, detailed and practical guide to the theory and practice of extemporaneous compounding and dispensing. Fully revised and updated, this new edition will be an indispensable reference for pharmacy students and practicing pharmacists.

Pharmaceutical Compounding and Dispensing provides a comprehensive guide to producing extemporaneous formulations safely and effectively.
The book covers three core sections:
· the history of compounding
