Introduction to the medical pre******************ion
Execution of the pre******************ion. It is a section of the science about medical agents, which concerns the rules of dispensing them in the various forms.
Medical agents these are substances or their mixtures natural, synthetic or biotechnological origin, which are applied to preventing pregnancy, prophylaxis, diagnosis and treatment of the human diseases or to changing status and function of the organism. There are such medical agents: a) active substances; b) ready-made medical agents (medicines, medical preparations, drugs); c) homeopathic agents; d) agents used for revealing pathogens illnesses agents and also for fight for pathogenic organisms and parasites; e) medical cosmetic agents and medical admixtures to food stuffs.
Ready-made medical agents (medicines, medical preparations, drugs) these are dosed medical agents in the form, which they are applied in.

Active agents (substances) biologically active substances, mighty to change the organism status and functions or can have preventive, diagnostic or curative action and are used for manufacturing the ready-made medicines.
Auxiliary substances are the additional substances necessary for preparation of the ready-made medicines.
Narcotic medical agents, these are referring to narcotic according to the legislation medicines.
Poisonous medical agents are the medicines referred to poisonous by the Ministry of public health of Ukraine.
Strong-acting medical agents these are medicines referred to strong-acting by the Ministry of public health of Ukraine.
The state register of the medical agents of Ukraine, this is the normative ************************, which contains of the information about medical agents permitted for manufacturing and application in medical practice.
State Pharmacopoeia of Ukraine is the legal act, that includes the general demands for medical agents, pharmacopoeia articles and also control methods of medicines quality (physical-chemical, chemical and biological methods).
Pharmacopoeia article, this is normative-technological ************************, which determines the demands for medical agents, their packing, conditions and terms of their storage, the control methods of their quality.
The set of properties, which are up to the requirements fixed by legislation and gives for medical agents an ability to satisfy the consumers according to their assignments, is named quantity.
Pharmacopoeia contains the inquiry tables, the tables of maximum single and daily doses poisonous and strong-acting medical agents for adults and children.
Medicines, the components, doses and the way of their preparation are directing in pharmacopoeia are named officinal (from lat. officina - laboratory, workshop), and pharmaceutical forms, which are preparing in drugstore after doctors pre******************ion are called magisterial (from lat. magister teacher, govern).

Nowadays in many countries of the world there is the tendency to apply the international names of medicines according to the united Latin chemical nomenclature of the medical agents, which is recommended by the World Health Organization and is given in the international pharmacopoeia (Pharmacopoeia Internationals). First of all its necessary for correct orientation of the doctors and pharmaceutists in huge quantity of the medicines, which are exported from one country to another. The same medical agent, which international name is known by experts all over the world, is manufactured out under various original names in the various countries and by various firms. The Pharmacopeias demands are compulsory for all enterprises of chemical-pharmaceutical industry, medical and preventive establishments.
The pharmaceutical form is the issue form of medical agents, that the best accords to application aim. It is the most advantageous for the usage with curative and preventive purpose.
There are Classifier of finished pharmaceutical forms, which has been developed according to Article 12 of The Law of Ukraine On Medicines:
1. Solid pharmaceutical forms;
2. Soft pharmaceutical forms;
3. Liquid pharmaceutical forms;
4. Pharmaceutical forms which are sprayed;
5. Pharmaceutical plant raw material;
6. Other pharmaceutical forms.
The arsenal of medicines consists of the agents mineral, vegetative, animal parentage, products of micro-organisms vital activity and chemically synthesized.
Galens preparation (such are named after Claudy Galen Ancient Roman doctor) are the medicines which are received by simple extraction from vegetative raw material by means of the water, alcohol or other. Besides active substances they contain other, ballast substances (cellulose, proteins, oils pigments, pitches, saponins and others). They are: extracts, infusions, tinctures and others, for example: tincture Valerianae, extract of Viburnum liquid.
New galens preparations, these are the persistent extracts from vegetative raw material cleaned as much as possible from ballast substances; for example Omnopon (opium allcaloids admixture), Adoniside (from Adonis vernalis), Digalen-neo (from leaves of foxglove Digitalis L.) and others. Such preparations can be applied parenterally.
Pharmacy, drugstore (gr. apotheke which means store, pantry).
- establishment for storage, preparation and selling medicines storage and selling curative mineral waters, dressings, the patient care things, sanitation products, personal hygiene things and so on.
In the drugstore all medical agents are parted on 3 groups:
1. Poisonous Venena, list A. the poisonous and narcotic substances belong to them. They are kept locked in cases with in******************ion Venena and A in specially equipped rooms. The severe registration of their expense is conducted. In the end of working-day the case, where they are kept, is sealed up.
2. Strong-acting Heroica, list B. Those medicines are also kept separately from other medical agents in the cases with in******************ion Heroica and B. After working-day this case is closed by a key.
3. Other Medical agents, which are stored in the drugstore according to the demands of pharmacopoeia.

8. It is the appeal of the doctor to the drugstore with the offer to take the pre******************ion under the responsibility concerning manufacturing the medicines. This part of the pre******************ion begins from Latin word Recipe, Rp. in reduced, that means take. After Rp. substances necessary for preparation the medicines are accounted (this part is called Designatio materiarum). The names of these substances are written on Latin in the genitive case, each from the capital letter and from the new line. After the medicine name its quantity (dose) is indicated. For liquid medical agents in milliliters or drops (for example: 0,1 ml, 1 ml, 10 ml; gtts III, gtts x and so on). And for the solid pharmaceutical forms, viscosity liquids (liniments, suspensions in grams for example: 20,0, 0,03, 0,005, that means accordingly 20 grams, 0,1 grams, 0,03 grams, 0,005 grams).

The reduction of the designations in the pre******************ion is allowed only in conformity to the rules accepted in medical and pharmaceutical practice (see addition).

The abroad pre******************ion
The pre******************ion in the foreign countries has got similar function as in Ukraine. It is the ************************ what contains the doctors appeal to the pharmacist about preparation or selling medicines for define patient. In the English speaking countries and countries with English speaking education system (India, Pakistan and others); pre******************ion is written out in English. The pre******************ions for ambulatory patients are written out on the special form or on the paper leaf with indication all structural stages of the pre******************ion.
The first four stages contain: 1. doctors surname, 2. license classification or his professional degree, 3. address and 4. work number telephone of the doctor. Thanks to those facts pharmacist can communicate with doctor with his own questions.

The classification of the medical forms we will use during our study pharmacology are below. There are such medical (pharmaceutical) forms (table 2):
1. Firm (solid) medical forms;
2. Soft medical forms;
3. Liquid medical forms;
4. Gasiforms
5. Medical forms for injections.

Table 2
The classification of medical (pharmaceutical) forms used in clinical practice
The firm (solid) medical forms
The powders, capsules, tablets, dragee and species (collections) and other medicinal products belong to the firm (solid) pharmaceutical forms.
Powders (Pulvis - nominative singular case, pulveris - genitive singular case) are the pharmaceutical form intended for internal and external application, consisting of solid separate dry particles of varying grinding degree. Various synthetic preparations, products of vital activity of the microorganisms (antibiotics), vegetative and animal parentage substances can be used for manufacturing powders. Hygroscopic substances (calcium chloride Calcii chloridum, sodium bromide Natrii bromidi, potassium acetate Kalii acetas and others), substances, that after mixing form wet masses and fluid (antipyrine Antipirinum and quinine Chininum), easy decomposed (silver nitrate Argenti nitras) in admixture with organic combination) or formed explosive substances are not prescribed in powders.
Powders are classified by the way of use, by the corpuscles size, by the composition and dosage.

By the way of use powders are distinguished for internal use (pulveres ad usum internum) and for axternal use (pulveres ad usum externum) powders. By the grinding degree there are smallest (pulveres subtilissimi), small (pulveres subtiles) and large (pulveres grossi) powders and others. As a rule, smallest powders are intended for external applications (pulveres ad usum externum).

They are quickly sucking in, less irritating the tissues. Nontoxic substances and substances with moderate activity which are prescribed in large doses or used inside after previous dissolution (for example - magnesium sulfate (Magnesii sulfas) are releasing as large powders. Medical agents look like the small powders frequently are used for internal applications (pulveres ad usum internum).
Depending on quantity of the acting substances what powder structure includes, are discerned simple powders, contained only one medical agent (pulveres simplicis), complex powders, what consist of the two or more substances (pulveres compositi).The drugstore releases dosed powders, divided into separate receptions (pulveres divisi) and undosed powders (pulveres indivisi).As a rule, the dosed powders are prescribed inside, undosed powders more offer are intended for external application, less offer they are prescribed inside.

Undosed powders for external and internal use are prescribed in quantities from 5,0 up to 100,0 and more. Writing the pre******************ion on the simple undosed powder it is necessary to indicate the name, quantity and grinding degree of the medical substance after the word Recipe: .Further from a new line write down Da. Signa (or D.S. in brief - release, indicate) and the way of use.
The name of medical agents we put in a genitive case after word Rp.: , because Rp. concerned to the quantity of substances.
Prescribing complex undosed powders all substances which are included into their structure had to be recalculated with indication quantities each of them. Then from the new line write down Misce, fiat pulvis (Mix for forming the powder), further - D.S. and the way of using.
Rp.: Natrii hydrocarbonatis 20.0
Natrii chloridi 10,0
Misce, fiat pulvis
Da.Signa.Dissolve one tea spoon
of the powder in a glass of warm water.
Use the solution for gargling the throat.
Undosed powders frequently are applied as dusting powder (Aspersio), that is for applying on the skin, mucous coats and wound surfaces.Such powders had to be subtilissimi what obligatory is indicated in pre******************ion.
Rp.:Aethazoli subtilissimi 50.0
D.S.Apply on the wound surface.
Sometimes medical substance is only certain part of the complex powder for dust.In different substances, which are the formative agents (Constituens) are made up the rest part of the powder. Talc (Talcum), starch (Amylum), less often, lycopodium (Lycopodium) or zinc oxide (Zinci oxydum), sometimes white clay (Bolus alba) are used as the formative substances for preparation dusting powders. If the structure of the dusting powder includes one ************ substance (basis) and one formative substance, we can write out pre******************ion by two ways:
a)reduced; b)developed;
a) Rp.: Aspersionis Amycazoli 5% 100,0
D.S. Apply on the skin of inter digital spaces twice a day.

b) Rp.: Amycazoli 5,0
Talci ad 100,0
Misce, fiat pulvis
Da. Signa. Apply on the skin of inter digital spaces twice a day.
If dusting powder is complex, so it is possible to write it out only by the developed way:
Rp.:Bismuthi subnitratis 10.0
Zinci oxydi
Amyli ana ad 100,0
Misce,fiat pulvis
D.S.Apply on the lesion parts of the skin.
As a rule, the dosed powders are prescribed for internal application. The mass of such powder changes in limits from 0,1 to 1 grams, and if the powder is the vegetative parentage, it is from 0,05 to 1 grams.If the mass of the medical substance (substances) is smaller than 0,1 gr. (for powders with vegetative parentage 0.05 gr.), it is necessary to add in different substance in quantity 0,2 or 0,3 gr. As constituents for manufacturing dosed powders sugar (Saccharum), milk-sugar (Saccharum lactis), glucose (Glucosuni) less often - powder of the liquorice root (Pulvis Glycyrrhizae), for the diabetes patient - starch (Amylum) are used.
Writing out the dosed powder we must indicate the medicine substance with designation of its single dose in the pre******************ion. Then it is necessary to indicate quantity these powders have to be given out: Dentur tales doses N. (Let will be given such doses by number), further Signa.
Rp.: Pancreatini 0,5
D. t. d. N. 24
S. In one powder three times a day before meal.
In case of pre******************ion of complex powder it is necessary to note:
Rp.: Platyphyllini hydrotartratis 0,005
Dibazoli 0,02
Sacchari 0,3
M. f. pulvis
D. t. d. N. 12
S. In one powder twice a day.
Prescribing the vegetative parentage powders sampler of writing begins from the word Pulveris, then indicates the part of plant, its name and dose.
Rp.: Pulveris foliorum Digitalis 0,05
D. t. d. 12
S. In one powder three times a day.
Flying and hydroscopic powders are released in waxed paper (Charta cerata) or paraffin paper (Charta paraffinata) packing, what is marked in pre******************ion.
Rp.: Camphorae tritae 0,2
D. t. d. N. 12 in charta cerata
S. In one powder three times a day.
Powders for inhalation (pulveres pro inhalationibus) are the smallest powders which are applied by means of inhalators, sometimes by retraction through the nose (insufflations).
Such smallest (subtilissimi) powders therefore are applied on the wound surfaces, on the eye conjunctiva and ear application. All they concern to the indivisible powders and are prescribing in not great quantities (5,0 - 10,0). They often have local action but they also can be used for achievement of the systemic effect.

The medical substances, which have unpleasant taste or smell, harmfully acting on the teeth or have irritation action, are prescribed in medical capsules (capsulae). Depending on the material, they are made of, there are:
a) starchy capsules or oblatae (capsulae amylaceae, s. oblatae);

b) gelatinous capsules (capsulae gelatinosae), which are hard (capsulae gelatinosae durae), elastic (capsulae gelatinosae molles, seu elasticae) and with lids (capsulae gelatinosae operculatae);

c) glutoidous capsules (capsulae glutoidales, s. gelloduratae).
d) different synthetic capsules (are very popular now).
Soft and hard gelatinous capsules contain 0,2-0,5 gr of the medical substances. Discharging medicines in capsules it is necessary to indicate in the pre******************ion: to release in gelatinous, starchy or glutoidous capsules - in capsulis gelatinosis, amylaceis, glutoidalibus.

Species (collections)
Species (collections) ( Species - nominative plural, Specierum - genitive plural) are the firm medical form, which is a mix of the grinding plant raw material ( flowers, roots, leaves), sometimes with addition of salts, other oils or other medicinal substances.
Collections (species) are intended for internal use (after the appropriate processing, they are used as tinctures, decoctions or infusions), for burning and inhalation formed smoke (species for smoking), for external use (for gargling and poultices). Prescribing this medical form the doctor must indicate in signatura not only the way of use, but also the way of preparing the medicines.
In addition, the collections can be classified as dosed and undosed ones. As a rule, the dosed species are prescribed, when the plant raw material contains strong acting substances. Then each plant component and its quantity are indicated on the pre******************ion. Further write Misce, fiant species. D. t. d. . . . and the Signatura.

They are produced at the factories and plants in single-dosed or multi-dosed containers.
The medicinal substances with unpleasant taste, smell, irritant action, but not enough toxic are produced in granules. That's why they dosed in tea-spoons and are released by common weight Granules, usually are intended for direct per oral applications. They also may be coated or uncoated. Nowadays some granules, especially for children, are produced in packets, preliminarily dissolved in the indicating volume of the warm boiling water and prescribed as liquid medical forms in tea-spoons or table-spoons.

Medical films
Films or inserts (membranulae) are the form dosed medical form, which is made by factory way as polymeryc films. They look like polymeryc plates with oval form and appropriate size. Films are classified on eye, intravaginal, stomatological onis. They consist of a matrix in which acting substances are included or the acting substance surrounded by a membrane which controls rate of release. There are ophthalmic films (intended for an insect to the conjunctival bag with local action) and oral films (glue to the mucous membrane of the gums at the level of the first premolar tooth). Each film is issued in the individual sterile container. Oral films have general action (for smoking prophylaxis and prophylaxis of the stenocardic attacks). By method of including in biodissolvable polimeryc films the medical agents are ensured fast coming of the effects and prolonged action after moistening by tissue fluid or secretion. Films are the officinal medical forms.

Gums are intended for application in oral cavity (for chewing), therefore the route of administration can be omitted in the name to a pharmaceuti­cal form.
Plates are the firm medical forms intended for wounds treatment. They are made from the collagen with admixing medical substances (analogous of the medical films). They are intended for applications on the wound surfaces with local action, released sterile. Prescribing plates we must indicate size according shapes of the wound.

Dental powder

Dental powder (pulvis dentalis) - it is a firm medical form, white powder with calcium carbonate precipitated as general component. Besides dental powders include other oils (mint, anise, pink or gum -tree oils) attached them pleasant smell and deodorant property. Dental powders are classified on hygienic and treatment-and-prophylactic one's with different degree of the abrasive action. In case of need, doctor can prescribe main treatment-and-prophylactic dental powder instead of the selling one's. They are prescribed like undosed powders for external applications (dusting - powders) with mass - 100 gr.

The soft medical forms

Suppositories, ointment, pastes, creams, liniments and other medicinal products concern to the soft pharmaceutical form.
Suppositories (suppositorium - nominative singular, suppositorium- accusative singular and suppositoria - accusative case plural) - the dosed medical forms. They are solid at the room temperature and are dissolved or melted at a body temperature. Differed suppositories rectal (suppositoria rectalia) and suppositories vaginal (suppositoria vaginalia), sticks (bacilli) - suppositories intended for introduction in the cervical channel of the uterus, in urinary channel, acoustical duck, nose, which have cylinder shape with pointed end.
By medical purpose rectal suppositories are divided into 2 groups: 1) with local action - antihemorrhoidal, suppositories for healing cracks and breaks, for treatment inflammation processes of the rectum; 2) with resorbtive action - suppositories showed systemic action (medicinal substances which they contain (enzymes, antibiotics, barbiturates, antiseptic, hormones, vitamins, spasmolytics, analgetics, diuretics etc.) are soaked in to the general blood flow through the system of the inferior and middle hemorrhoid veins. Thats why prescribing in rectal suppositories strong - acting and poisonous substances, it is necessary to follow the same rules of dosed as for the medical forms used inside.
Suppositories contain one or more acting substances, dispersed or dissoluble in a simple or complex basis which can be dissolved, dispersed, melted at body temperature. A suppository may include additional components, such as solvents, absorbents, lubricant substances, antimicrobial agents, dues and also solid fats, macrogols, gelatin mixtures (gelatin, water, glycerin), being their basis.
So, suppositories include medical agent (agents) and formative substances (constituens). As formative substances are used such substances:
a) Cacao-seed oil (oleum Cacao, s. butyrum Cacao);
b) Butyrol (butyrolum - hydrogenizated fat with various chemical structure);
c) Gelatinous mixture (mass) (massa gelatinosa - fusion of the gelatin (1 part), glycerin (5 parts) and water (2 parts));
d) Synthetic basis polyaethylen-oxydum and others.
Rectal suppositories are cone-shaped or cylinder-shaped with rounded end ones. Their weight changes from 1,1 until to 4,0gz.The maximum permissible diameter is 1,5 cm. If the weight suppositories is not indicated, they are made with mass 3,0 gr.
Vaginal suppositories are differed by shape on: globuli (globuli - spherical), ovuli (ovulae - oviform) and pessary (pessaria - flat body with rounded end). The weight of vaginal suppositories is from 1,5 to 6,0 gr. If in the pre******************ion the weight is not indicated, they are made in mass - 4,0 gr.
Main (magistral) suppositories made in the drugstore may be prescribed in several ways.
The first way. After the word Rp. it is necessary to write the name of medical substance (substances), the single dose of each of them and formative substance with its quantity (on 1 supp.).
It is allowed not to indicate the quantities of the constituens in the pre******************ion. In such case it is necessary to write q. s. (quantum satis how much it is necessary) instead of the quantities formative substances. Before signature we must sign D. t. d. N (Da tales doses numero - Give out such doses by number ) cause suppositories are dosed medical forms.

The second way. In this case it is necessary to note not single doses of substances, which are included into the suppositories structure, containing basis, but quantities necessary for preparing all suppositories. For their definition we must multiply single dose on the quantity of suppositories, what is written out. Then it is necessary to write Misce, fiant suppositoria rectalia numero .
Rp.: Dimedroli 0,12
Olei Cacao 36,0
M. fiant suppositoria rectalia N. 12

D. t. d. N. 10
S. In one suppository into the rectum in
the morning and in the evening.
Where the word suppository is used in the accusative case singular (suppositorium), further after adjective cum (with) we wrote the name of medicinal substance with its quantity, at the end of pre******************ion we wrote D. t. d. N and signature.
Some complex officinal suppositories have the commercial name, for example, suppositoria Anuzolum, Bethiolum and other. Prescribing them at first we must write the word suppositories in the accusative case plural (suppositoria) and then the name of the suppositories with their quantity. If the name is not bracketed we use it in the genitive case singular.
Rp.: Suppositoria Bethiolum N. 10
D. S. In one suppository into the rectum twice a day,

Ointments (unguents)
Ointments (unguents) (unguentum nominative singular, unguenti genitive singular) the soft medical form intended for external application. Unguents contain one or more active substances and formative agents. As a ************ for the ointments are used:
a) Vaseline or white petrolatum (Vaselinum);
b) Lanolin (Lanolinum);
c) Pork cleared fat (Adeps suillus depuratus, s. Axungia porcina depurata);
d) officinal glyceric unguent (Ung. Glycerini);
e) officinal naphthalan unguent (Ung. Naphthalani);
f) officinal spermacetical unguent (Ung. Cetacei).
Preparing ophthalmic ointments we are using basis, what contained 10 parts of Lanolin and 90 parts of special Vaseline (for ophthalmic ointments).
Depending on a ************ ointments can be hydrophobic (carbohydrate basis vaseline, vaseline oil, paraffin etc.), hydrophilic (a water-soluble basis).
The ointments basis determines quality of the unguent in the certain measure. Unguents, which are made on the pork cleared fat, quickly spoil on account of hydrolysis of the fat on glycerin and fatty acids. The ointments, which are made on Vaseline and lanolin, are stable enough and can be stored for a long time. Pork fat, lanolin and spermacetical unguent promote the suction medicinal agents through the skin. Vaseline and naphthalan unguent are not soaked up through the skin, thats why they are used for manufacturing ointments with superficial action.
There are magistral (main) and officinal ointments. The main unguent, that contained one medical substance and Vaseline, can be written out by reduced and complete ways. In the first case we write Unguenti, name of the medicinal substance and its concentration in %, total quantity of the ointment after the word Rp.
Rp.: Ung. Prednisoloni 0,5% 20,0
D. S. Grease the affected regions of the skin
Prescribing this unguent by complete way, after the word Rp. we must recount all medical agents, included into the ointment, their quantity, further from a new line - Misce, fiat unguentum (reduced M. f. ung.); D. S. and mark the way of its use. In such case it is possible to give account how many grams of prednisolone and vaseline we need to take for preparing the unguent, knowing concentration and total quantity of the ointment. We reflect on such way:
0,5% prednisolone unguent - this is such unguent, which contains
0,5 gr of prednisolone in own 100 grams. So, X grams of prednisolone will be in the 20 grams of this unguent. These correlations formed such proportion:
100,0 - 0,5 X = 20,0 x 0,5 : 100,0 = 0,1
20,0 - X
Thus, for preparing 20 grams of the 0,5% prednisolone unguent we must take 0,1 gr prednisolone and the rest will be made by vaseline.
Rp.: Prednisoloni 0,1

If we write out the unguent by reduced way (the ointment basis is not specified), such unguent is prepared on vaseline in the drugstore.
The ointments are written out only by the developed way in case it is necessary to prepare unguent not on vaseline, but on other ************s, and also when unguent contains two or more medical substances.

The officinal unguents are prescribed only by the reduced way, irrespective of their structures. In the pre******************ion we indicate its name and total quantity. The concentration has not need to be specified.
Rp.: Ung. Hydrargyri oxydi flavi 10,0
D. S. Pawn for lower eyelid by night.
Total quantity of the unguent for treatment the skin (mucous) is 20,0-100,0 gr and more and as for ophthalmic unguent - it is 5,0-10,0 gr.
If structure of the ointment includes medicinal substance what quantity is underlined on the action units (OD), the pre******************ion on such unguent can be written out by the reduced way (if unguent should be made on vaseline) with indication of the OD drug quantity in the 1 gram of unguent.
Rp.: Ung. Tetracyclini 20,0 (1g- 10000 OD)
D. S. Grease the skin in the affected regions.
If this ointment is made not on vaseline, but on other ************, prescribing it by the complex way we must recalculate the OD quantity of the medicinal substance to all unguent quantity:
10000 OD (tetracycline quantity in the 1 gram of ointment) in 20,0 (grams quantity of the unguent) are equal 200000 OD.
Rp.: Tetracyclini 200000 OD

Dosed ointment (unguentum divisum) are intended for application medicinal substances with resorptive action. That's why they are applied by the portions contained the single dose of the medical substance. They can be magistral (main) but seldom. Often the dosed ointments are officinal. They are produced with indication of the concentration:
Colchamine ointment 0,5%: Unguentum Colchamini 0,5% (single permissible dose - 1,5 gr.);
Unguent "Nitro" 2%: Unguentum "Nitro" 2% (from 0,5 till 5 cm of the column);
Pyromecaine ointment 5%: Unguentum Pyromecaini 5% (single dose - 1,0).
Rectal unguent (unguentum rectale). Officinal unguent produced by pharmaceutical industry in the special forms for application into the rectum cavity. It is the dosed form because this ointment is mentioned for resorbtive action.
Vaginal unguent (unguentum vaginale). It is the officinal dosed unguent intended for introduction into the vagina. This ointment is produced in the special forms.
Urethral unguent (unguentum urethrale). This is the variety of the dosed ointment intended for inroduction into the urinary channel. It has the local action. This unguent is produced in the syrettes for dosed applications connected with narrow aperture of the urethra.

Paste (pasta - nominative singular, pastae - genitive singular) - is the soft medicinal product for local application, the variety of the ointment, that contained from 25 % up to 65 % powder like substances, so it is the thick unguent. Paste contains one or more active substances and fats and fat like substances which are used for manufacturing unguents, forming the ************. If powder medical substances which are contained into the paste, make less than 25 % of its weight, then in those case it is necessary to increase their quantity by expense of addition of indifferent substances as talc (Talcum), zinc oxyde (Zinci oxydum), starch (Amylum), lycopodium (Lycopodium), white clay (Bolus alba) and others.
Magistral (main) pastes are prescribed only by developed way. For example, if it is necessary to write out 50,0gr. of paste, what contained 10 % of anaesthesine (Anaesthesinum) and 1 % of menthol (Mentholum). For receiving paste consistence, it is necessary to add the indifferent powder in any quantity in limits 25-65 % from the total paste quantity.
All ingredients of the paste are written out in the weight units. So, we must to make the proportion:
For anaesthesine 10,0 - 100,0 X = 10 x 50 : 100 = 5,0
X - 50,0 X = 5,0
That means, anaesthesine needs to be taken 5 gr.
For menthol 1,0 - 100,0 X = 1,0 x 50,0 : 100,0 = 0,5
X - 50,0 X = 0,5
That means, menthol needs to be taken 0,5 gr.
The quantity of the indifferent powder (for example, talc) can be in limits 12,5-32,5 gr. (25-65 % from 50 gr of paste).
The vaseline quantity is necessary to calculate like this: subtract from total paste quantity (50 gr.) the weight of all previous components (5 gr anaesthesine, 0,5 gr menthol, 12,5 gr talc) or write out ad 50,0.

Rp.: Anaesthesini 5,0
Mentholi 0,5
Talci 12,5

M. f. pasta
D. S. Apply to the affected parts of the skin.
If medicinal substance, included into the paste structure, is a powder and is not dissolved in the unguent ************; prescribing paste it needs to be taken in account, that total quantity of powder in the paste was not more, than 65 % from the paste general mass.
For example, it is necessary to prescribe 50 gr. of the paste, that consists of 20 % zinc oxide. In such case preparing paste it is necessary to take the quantity of the indifferent powder, not more than 45 %, because 20 % + 45 % = 65 % (the top limit of the allowable quantity of the powder in the paste). The pre******************ion looks like this:
Rp.: Zinci oxydi 10,0
Talci 15,0
Vaselini ad 50,0
M. f. pasta
D. S. Apply to the affected parts of the skin.
In this case the powders weight is 50 % of the total paste mass. The officinal pastes are prescribed by the reduced way:
Rp.: Pastae Antisepticae biologicae 10,0
D. S. Apply to the gums by night.
Stomatological pastes (pastae stomatologicae). They are used in stomatological practice for treatment caries, pulpits and also for prophylaxis dental caries. They are preparing in small amounts from 1,0 g up to 15,0 g near the patient chair.
In the drugstore is prepared only arsenic paste for devitalization of the pulp. They include powder like substances (sometimes in combination with liquid substances) and constituents as glycerin (Glycerinum), camphorated oil (Oleum camphoratum), oil of cloves (Oleum Caryophyllorum), eugenol (Eugenolum). Stomatological pastes are prescribed only by the complex way:

Tooth-pastes contain calcium carbonate purificant, (as the ************), glycerin, bound substances, antiseptic, detergent and air - way (other oils). We clean teeth with hygienic pastes for moving off the food remainders or the dental deposit. Their nomenclature is extraordinary various. They are produced by perfumery industry and are differed by gustatory and cleaning kinds.
Treatment - and - prophylactic pastes contain still bioactive substances (salts, enzymes, extracts of the medicinal herbs, vitamins, microelements). There are saline pastes ("Balsam" and others), chlorophyl pastes ("Karophyll", "Forestry", and others), boran-glyceric and fluor-contained pastes ("Colgate", "Ftordent" and others). Depending on the acting substance these pastes have various treatment action and prophylactic action, used for treatment different stomatological pathologies.

Liniments (linimentum - nominative singular, linimenti - genitive singular) are also the variety of the unguents. But these are the soft medical products, liquid unguent for local application, which contain up to 5 % of hard substances.
As constituens for preparing liniments are used vegetative or mineral oils ( Ol. Lini - linseed oil, Ol. Helianthi - sunflowerseed oil, Ol. Hyoscyami - henbane oil, Ol. Olivarum - olive oil, Ol. Amygdalarum - almond oil, Ol. Persicorum - peach - kernel oil, Ol. Vaselini - vaseline oil, Ol. Ricini - ricin oil, tar, ichthyol and others). Liniments are prescribed only by the developed way. We must recalculate all ingredients and their quantities after the word Rp., then from a new line write down Misce, fiat linimentum (reduced - M. f. Lin.) and D. S. , the way of use.
Rp.: Mentholi 2,0
Ol. Helianthi ad 50,0
M. f. lin.
D. S. Rub in strucked joints.
Officinal liniments are written out by the reduced way.
Rp.: Lin. Ammoniati 40,0
D. S. For rubbing lumbar region.

Rp.: Lin. Sythomycini 10% 25,0
D. S. Render to the edges of the wound.

Creams (cremor - nominative singular, cremoris - genitive singular) are the soft medicinal products for local application, the variety of the emulsion ointments, produced without addition of the emulsifier.

They represent one, two - or multiphase dispersion systems, which dispersion environment at certain storage temperature is, as a rule. They differed from ointments by sourcream-like (semiliquid) consistence and small stability. Creams have cooling action and rapidly skin soaked. Into the medicinal and cosmetic creams are added aromatic substances.
Creams are intended for application to skin and its appendages wounds, ulcers, certain mucous membranes.
They are prescribed by the reduced way with indication of the percentage concentration medical substance or only its quantity (for the officinal creams).
Rp.: Cremoris Canesteni 1% 20,0
D. S. Rub skin in the strucked regions.

Gels (gelum - nominative singular, geli - genitive singular) are the soft medicinal products for local application; the ointments prepared on the hydrophilic ************s with gel - like (semi - liquid, galantine - like) consistence. They are one, two - or multiphase dispersion systems with the liquid dispersion medium, which rheological properties are conditioned by presence of gelatinizes in small concentration. Gelatinizes can act as stabilizers of suspensions. That's why such gels can refer to suspension gels or emulgels, respectively. In gels medicinal substances allotted to skin more evenly and acts for the tissues.
By mode of application the gels can be divided in gels for external application (troxevasin-gel, voltaren-gel, indovasine-gel), for peroral application (jelly), which is the most frequently used in pediatric practice (almagel, phosphalugel), as well as nasal, eye, ear, rectal, vaginal, cervical, ure-thral, stomatological gels, gels for inhalations ("Mentoclar"). Gels are prescribed by the reduced way (officinal gels) or with indication percentage substance concentration.
Rp.: Geli Troxevasini 2 % 40,0
D. S. Grease in the region of the foot atrophic ulcer.

Lotions (lotio - nominative singular, lotionis - genitive singular) - alcohol - oiling liquids, which contained cooling and anticeptic substances. They are intended for external applications (for purification, disinfection the skin of the face, ears, sometimes nose mucous); there are also eye lotion.
Lotions are prescribed as officinal medicinal forms.
Rp.: Lotionis Zinci spirituosae 100 ml
D. S. For application on damaged skin.

Plasters (emplastrum - nominative singular, emplastri - genitive singular, emplastra - nominative plural) are the soft medical form, transdermal therapeutic systems. They are looking like the plastic mass which capable of melting at body temperature and sticking to skin, or the mass applied on the carrier (fabric). Plasters are intended for external application (for skin application) and have local action. There are regular (hard) and liquid (skin glues) plasters, smeared (on the fabric or paper ************s) and unsmeared (look like conic or cylindrical pulley-blocks) plasters; and also rubber (an adhesive plaster, capsicum, corn) plasters.
By medicinal pre******************ion they are differed to the epidermatic plasters (without medical agents, used as dressing material - leucoplasters) and endermatic plasters with keratolytic, depilatory and other medical substances for treatment dermal diseases (local action) and with irritative substances (reflex action).
Ability for melting and sticking to skin provides with plaster-************, which is prepared on fusion of the rosin, paraffin, wax, caoutchouc and some other substances. They are manufacturing in the plants and at the factories.
Plasters are prescribed by the reduced way, because they are undosed medicinal forms. After indication of the form (emplastri-genitive singular) we must write down the plaster name, its quantity (if it is unsmeared and prescribed on the hard blocks 20,0-50,0, or its size (if it is fabric smeared with indication length and width).
Rp.: Emplastri bactericidi adhaesivi 10 x 6 cm
D.S. Fix the edges of the wound.
Liquid plasters. It is the skin lacquers which contain the volatile substances, formed the skin films after dissolvent evaporation. They are produced by the way of dissolution the medical substances and detergents in the volatile fluid likes ether or ethyl spirit.
They are officinal plasters produced in the bottles or in the aerosol balloons. Liquid plasters are widely used in the surgical and dermatological practices, for example cleol (Cleolum) and collodion (Collodium).
Rp.: Cleoli 100 ml
D.S. For protection of scratched skin.
Transdermal systems (Transdermalia systemata) or diadermatic plasters are intended for medicinal agents penetrating through the skin with resorbtive action and with influence over the more deeply situated layers of the skin. Nowadays native and foreign industries produce such plasters with nitroglycerin: nitroderm (Nitroderm), nitrodur (Nitrodur) and nitradisc (Nitradisc). They are dosed (50 mcg nitroglycerin in one plaster) and ensured long action of the medicine by the way of its entering into the blood (up to 24 hours). They are sticking to skin of the left front-lateral thorax surface or to the skin of the left forearm for treatment of ischemic heart disease.

Liquid medicinal forms (solutions for external and inner use)
Liquid medical forms include solutions, tinctures, infuses, decoctions, balsams, liquid extracts, mixtures, elixirs, suspensions, syrups, juices, musses and other medicinal products. These medical forms are dosed in milliliters, some of them in drops. Liquid forms are better entering into the blood, soaking up in the skin and acting more quickly, than solid medicinal forms. But these forms have such short-comings of using them in drops, spoons or cups doses. Their peculiarities may change over influence of surrounding environments, such as light, air.

Solutions (Solutiones; solutio nominative singular, solutionis genitive singular) are the simplest liquid medical form which is intended for external applications, per oral applications and for parenteral administrations. This form is representing a homogeneous transparent system including one or more active substances, received by the way of dissolution of the solid, liquid and gasiforme substances in the solvent or by the way of mixing two or more substances. The most frequently used solvents are: distilled water (Aqua destillata) or bidistilled water (Aqua bidestillata), ethyl spirit (Spiritus aethylicus) with concentrations 90%, 70%,40% est., glycerin (Glycerinum) and oils: peach-kernel oil (Oleum Pecsicorum), olive oil (Oleum Olivarum), Vaseline oil (Oleum Vaselini) and others.
By type of solvent the solutions can be divided into water, alcoholic, oil, combined (hydroalcoholic, alcohol-aqueous) and other (non-aqueous) solvents.
If solvent is not water, this should be specified while composing a pharmaceutical form. If solvent is not specified in the pre******************ion, than solution is prepared on the distilled water. If concentration is not indicated in the pre******************ion too, the chemist prepares solution on ethyl spirit with concentration 90%.
Solutions for internal use are dosed in drops, table-spoons, tea-spoons and dessert-spoons. The average capacity of the table-spoon is 15 ml of water solution; of dessert-spoon 10 ml and of tea-spoon 5 ml.
Solutions are prescribed by reduced and developed ways. Prescribing solutions for internal use we must write down after the word Rp.: the name of the medical agent, then solvent, their quantities. At the end of pre******************ion are written words Misce. Da. Signa (reduced M.D.S. that means: Mix. Give out. Indicate) with indication of the way of use (for example: In one table-spoon three times a day, or In 15 drops three times a day in half of hour after a meal).
The quantities of medical substances, included into solution, and quantity of the solvent is necessary to account ************d on the single dose, the way of dosage and the common quantity of receptions. For example, we must prescribe sodium bromide solution for internal use in single dose 0,3 gr. The patient must take this drug in one table-spoon three times a day during four days. These calculations are made like:
all receptions: 4 x 3 = 12
necessary quantity of sodium bromide: 0,3 g x 12 = 3,6 g
common quantity of solution: 15 ml x 12 = 180 ml
So, pre******************ion looks like this:
Rp.: Natrii bromidi 3,6
Aqua destillatae ad 180 ml
M.D.S. In 1 table-spoon three times a day.
If solutions are dosed in tea-spoons or in dessert-spoons the common quantity is recalculated by multiplying the number of receptions on 5 or 10 ml.
This solution we can prescribe by the reduced way. In such case it is necessary after the word Rp.: write down Solutions (reduced Sol.), then medicines name, solution concentration (in %) and its quantity, and also symbol D.S. and the method of reception. For receiving solution concentration it is necessary to make the proportion:
180 3,6 x = 3,6 :180 x 100 % = 2 %
100 - x
We can calculate this solution concentration in such way: 15 ml of the solution (1 table-spoon) contain 0,3 g. Sodium bromide and 100 ml of the solution include X g; x = 2 %.
This pre******************ion we will write like:
Rp.: Sol. Natrii bromidi 2 % 180 ml
D.S. In 1 table-spoon three times a day.
Solutions for internal use, closed in drops are written out by the same way as the solutions dosed in spoons.
Solutions, prescribed for internal use in drops, are discharged by the same way as solutions dosed by spoons. It is necessary to recalculate common number of the drops in the volume unit (ml) of the drug quantity. The common number of the drops is recalculated multiplying single drops dose on the receptions number. This value is transferred into milliliters by the way of its division on the number of drops in one milliliter. We must take into account that 1 ml of the water or water solution includes 20 drops. 1 ml of the spirit or alcoholic solutions contains 50 drops, 1 ml of the ether solution near 80 drops, 1 ml of the oil solution 30 drops in average.
For example, it is necessary to prescribe for patient Platyphyllin hydrotartras (Platyphyllini hydrotartras, pro dosi 0,002 g) solution intended for internal use in 10 drops twice a day during 20 days.
These calculations are made:
Common number of receptions 2 x 20 = 40
Quantity of platyphyllin 0,002 x 40 = 0,08 (g)
Solution common quantity 10 x 40 = 400 (drops) or
400 x 20 = 20 (ml); or
0,5 ml x 40 (receptions) = 20 (ml)
So, pre******************ion will be like this:
Rp.: Platyphyllini hydrotartratis 0,08
Aquae destillatae ad 20 ml
M.D.S. For internal use in 10 drops twice a day.
For write out this pre******************ion by the shorted method we must calculate solution concentration in percents
20 0,08 X = 0,08 : 20 x 100 % = 0,4 %
100 - X
Solution concentration we can recalculate also like this:
0,5 ml solution (10 drops) contain 0,002 g Platyphyllin
100 ml solution contain X g Platyphyllin; X 0,4 %
Our pre******************ion looks like:
Rp.: Sol. Platyphyllini hydrotartratis 0,4% 20 ml
D.S. For internal use in 10 drops twice a day.
Solutions for external application are prescribed by the same way as solutions for internal use (large-scaled and reduced methods).
So, in case of prescribing solutions by the reduced way concentration may be shown a) in percent (%), b) in relative units (on correlation) and c) in mass-volume correlation.
So, first of all after the word Rp.: we write down Sol., medicine name, concentration and solution quantity, and then D.S. and the way of usage.
a) Rp.: Sol. Furacilini 0,02 % 500 ml
D.S. For bathing of the wounds.
Solution concentration we can express not only in percents but also in relative units (on correlation):
b) Rp.: Sol. Furacilini 1: 5000 500 ml
D.S. For bathing of the wounds.
Proceeded from that 0,02 % solution furacin this is the solution, 100 ml of what contain 0,02 g furacilin, and X ml will contain 1,0 g of this medicine.
100 0,02
X 1,0 X = 1,0 x 100 : 0,02 = 5 000
Mainly, it concerns to the great dilutions, we can indicate also medicine quantity what is necessary for preparing some solution quantity (mass-volume correlation) (c).
c) Rp.: Sol. Furacilini ex 0,1 500 ml
D.S. For bathing of the wounds.
0,02 % furacin solution that is solution which contained 0,02 g of the medical agent in the 100 ml. 500 ml of this solution contained X g of furacilin:

100 0,02 X = 0,02 x 500 : 100 = 0,1
500 X
This solution we can prescribe by developed way.
Rp.: Furacilini 0,1
Aquae destillatae ad 500 ml
M.D.S. For bathing of the wounds
Solutions for internal and external use prescribed by reduced way are preparing on distilled water if the solvent is not noted. The name of pre******************ion must include words spirituosae, oleosae if we use oil or alcohol as solvent. But it is necessary to remember, that drug-store will prepare spirituous solutions on 90% spirit and oil solutions on peach-kernel oil according to this pre******************ion.
Rp.: Sol. Camphorae spirituosae 5 % 50 ml
D.S. For rubbing into the skin in the painful joint area.

Rp.: Sol. Mentholi deosae 1 % 20 ml
D.S. Fall in each nostril 2-3 drops twice a day.

Solutions, prepared on the other solvents, are prescribed only by large-scale method.
Officinal solutions for external and internal applications are written out only by reduced way like: after the word Rp. are indicated name, quantity and then D.S., the way of use.
Rp.: Liquoris Kalii arsenitis 10 ml
D.S. For 3 drops three times a day.

Rp.: Sol. Ammonii caustici 10,0
D.S. To moisten the cotton, let patient inhale
it in the times of consciousless.
We prescribe solutions for external use in quantity 5-100 and more milliliters; ear, eye and nose drops 5-10 ml.
Some complex solutions include 2, 3 and more medical agents (combine) and have commercial names. For example, essentiale, panangine and others. They are administered parenteral by various ways, are produced in ampoules (see Chapter 6). They are prescribing without indications of the medicinal form and concentration.
Rp.: Asparcam 10 ml
D.t.d. N 10 in ampullis
S. For intravenous administration (dropply!)
twice a day by 10 ml, preliminary it must be
diluted in 100 ml of water for injections.
