Abstract:  Although the art of apothecary existed as early as the first settlers in the location known today as Nigeria, the practice of pharmacy has transformed from training of dispensers in the 17th century to compounding pharmacists. Compounding, currently carried out exclusively in hospital pharmacies in Nigeria, is a relatively small but significant part of pharmaceutical care since it is tailored to individual/ special patients for positive therapeutic outcomes. This aspect of pharmaceutical service suffers challenges in Nigeria.
