What is the Reconstitution of a Medication? It is the process of adding a solvent to a drug in the form and quantity necessary for proper administration by the indicated route. In simple terms it is to convert a drug, usually in powdered form in a mixture which can be administered orally, intravenous or intramuscular. Reconstitution of the Drug Powders for suspension are marketed as oral reconstitutable medications in unit-dose sachet or multidose bottles. Most drugs prepared as a dry mix for oral suspension are antibiotics. They may contain excipients, in particular, to facilitate dispersion or dissolution and to prevent caking Designate a separate area for containers with products that require reconstitution. After the product is reconstituted, it should be given to the pharmacist to counsel the patient on how to measure the medication. Incorporate an independent double check of the volume of diluent measured prior to the actual reconstitution of the product

In many cases, drawing a picture that visually represents the problem is often a helpful strategy
cytotoxic drugs: Drugs capable of damaging or killing cells. These can be used in the treatment of cancer because their effect is greatest on cells which are reproducing most rapidly.
