Abstract:  All Portuguese community pharmacies have a compounding laboratory and minimum equipment for the preparation of nonsterile (traditional) compounded medicines, but a few community pharmacies specialize in compounding. At Farmácia Lordelo, the most frequently dispensed compounded medicines are oral liquids for pediatrics and multi-drug, semisolid preparations for dermatology patients. The majority of the compounded medicines is prepared in accordance with the national galenic formulary and standardized monographs, in order to guarantee the quality and safety of the compounded medicines dispensed.
