The popularity of ready-made medicines is always a matter of concern to the pharmacists and to a somewhat lesser extent to scientific physicians. The very general use of tablet triturates and of special medical preparations is one of the facts we have to meet, and the question is how are we to meet it? Is it to be considered, as many of our pharmaceutical friends hold, an absolute evil, or shall we accept it as something to be modified only for the better? It is possible that it implies a lack of facility of drug-combining, and probably of a certain sort of pharmaceutical knowledge in the physician, and this is to be regretted. On the other hand, there is a certain attractiveness and apparent safety in some features of the new methods, strongly in their favor with medical men.
