 About The Book  

   Pharmaceutics involves preparation (or formulation) of dosage forms and traditionally considered as an art. For this purpose, the pharmacist should apply his knowledge of prescription, monographs, packaging, mathematics, dispensing, pharmacognosy, pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacology, patient needs, patient compliance, etc. Hence, preparing acceptable formulations is a science.
   This laboratory manual is intended to first and second year level of B. Pharm students.
   The experiments are divided for convenience into two parts, namely formulations and prescriptions. Formulations part includes discussion on syrups, elixirs, linctuses, solutions, suspensions, liniments, collodions, gargles, and mouthwashes. Prescriptions part consists of powders, emulsions, enemas, effervescent salts, and suppositories including incompatibilities.
     Special emphasis is given for the following:
       • General principles for each type of preparation/prescription
       • Examples for each type, with diagrams, figures, and tables
       • Evaluation tests
       • Appendix as a ready reference
       • Question bank for synopsis and viva voice
       • Model question papers
