Since its first publication, this book has been the go-to guide for treating patients who require any of the 80% of medications not commercially available in appropriate forms or dosages for paediatric, geriatric, or special needs populations. Now even more comprehensive, the third edition provides the same evidence-based formulation in easy-to-follow "recipes" for 197 nonsterile formulations, 39 of which are new, and two of which have been updated for this edition. Each "recipe" includes ingredients; preparation details and instructions; storage conditions; special instructions; alternatives; expiration dates; references; and documented stability data. An invaluable resource for practitioners and compiled by experts in the field, this book provides the best guidance you can get for the care you want to give.
