3D -printing has become increasingly common in many fields of work and study. Soon, we will be printing medication.

Will we begin to print our own medication?

Printing medicine is a new and efficient way of producing a personalized dosage for each patient. In 2015, FDA accepted the first printed medicine.

The future prospects of printing medicine are intriguing; will pharmacies operate the printing, or could perhaps the patients themselves be in charge of printing their own medicine?
