Pharmacists are exposed to the drug when dispensing powder drug. The authors clarified the current status with scientific measurements. The pharmacists were exposed to 0.17 µg/d (median) of drug ingredients just in the dispensing room. Furthermore, dispensing drug powder increased the exposure to a maximum of 0.4–36 µg per one prescription. Although there are concerns about the health hazards of pharmacists due to exposure to drug dust, they found that wearing medical mask removed more than 90% of drug ingredient.
