Pharmaceutical Codex

Pharmaceutical Codex

A tome published by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain as a supplement to the British Pharmacopoeia since 1979, which replaced the British Pharmaceutical Codex. While the Codex is extensive, it does not cover all of the medicinal agents that a pharmacist sees in daily practice. The 12th edition was produced in 1994.
