About the Book

The practical aspects of General Pharmacy lay the foundation blocks of pharmaceutics knowledge to students making a debut into the pharmaceutical profession. A manual explaining the practical vis-a-vis the theoretical aspects has always been in demand but not available so far. PHARMACEUTICS-I (General Pharmacy) -A Practical Manual is probably the only book of its own kind that is most relevant in the modern practical context, fulfilling the gap mentioned above.

            The language of this manual is kept as simple as possible for the level of students so that they may easily grasp the fundamentals of preparation of various dosage forms. This book includes 22 chapters and 34 exercises illustrating 131 preparations covering all the topics prescribed in the latest syllabi of different universities in India. The topics covered are aromatic waters, solutions, syrups, elixirs, spirits, powders, lotions, liniments, mucilage, glycerins, inhalation, tinctures and extracts, pastes, jellies, ear preparations, eye preparations, nasal preparations, pills, lozenges, pastilles, as well as preliminary experiments on size reduction and solid-solid mixing. Each chapter provides brief notes on particular dosage forms like introductory information, methods of preparation, therapeutic uses, dose, storage conditions, specific labelling requirement, contraindication (if any), marketed preparations and specimen label.
