A Brief History of Pharmacy Book Excerpt:

Pharmacy has become an integral part of our lives. Nearly half of all 300 million Americans take at least one prescription drug daily, accounting for $250 billion per year in sales in the US alone. And this number doesn't even include the over-the-counter medications or health aids that are taken. How did this practice become such an essential part of our lives and our health? A Brief History of Pharmacy: Humanity's Search for Wellness aims to answer that question. As this short overview of the practice shows, the search for well-being through the ingestion or application of natural products and artificially derived compounds is as old as humanity itself. From the Mesopotamians to the corner drug store, Bob Zebroski describes how treatments were sought, highlights some of the main victories of each time period, and shows how we came to be people who rely on drugs to feel better, to live longer, and look younger. This accessible survey of pharmaceutical history is essential reading for all students of pharmacy.

An epic history of pharmacy Book Excerpt:

What really sets humankind apart from other species is our fondness of drugs. This vale of tears, full of plants and animals to tame, was the breeding ground for cultures and civilizations with a penchant for developing the noble art of pharmacy. The Neolithic revolution marked the coming into being and development of great states and empires, with the consequential increase in headaches. But that was no big deal, since shamans, witch doctors, physicians, priests, apothecaries, and/or sorcerers sought, and sometimes found, remedies to relieve migraines and a wide range of ailments. After a taste of this Epic History of Pharmacy you'll doubtlessly feel better. You are holding a fully legal dose for a relaxing but at the same time frenzied trip: from the wild prehistoric Garden of Eden to the marmoreal and massive Rome, passing through Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, China, America, Persia and Greece. And all of it visually administered, in the form of a carefully formulated ointment of literary panacea seasoned with humor-coated pills of compressed cartoons.

Defining Drugs Book Excerpt:

In Defining Drugs, Richard Henry Parrish II argues that the federal government became arbiter of pharmaceutical fact because the professions of pharmacy and medicine, as well as the pharmaceutical industry, enforces these definitions and standards through police powers reserved to government. In a new introduction to this edition, Parrish argues that an amendment to the United States Constitution is needed to protect health freedom from government and industry intrusion. Parrish begins his provocative study by examining the development of the social system for regulating drug therapy in the United States. He reviews the standards that have been negotiated, and the tensions of the period between Progressivism and the New Deal that give cultural context and historical meaning to drug use in American society. He also describes issues related to the development of narcotics policy through education and legislation, and documents the federal government’s evolving role as arbiter of market tensions between producers, government, and citizens. More than 100,000 Americans die each year from prescription pharmaceutical therapies. Parrish argues that the current system of drug dispensing is fatally flawed. This controversial volume is written for the scholar and the practitioner alike, and a general public concerned with pharmacy regulation in a free society.

Pharmacists in some communities work with patients, the patient's doctors, and insurance companies to manage the patient's disease states. Increasingly, they are the point of cont
