Abstract Pharmaceutical activities during the Second Empire have been neglected by historians of science in recent decades, even though pharmacy was an important discipline in Mexico City.

This is shown by analyzing 12 papers published in theGaceta Médica de México, the journal of the Sociedad Médica de México.

Examination of these papers helps us understand the interests, practices and pharmaceutical activities of some of this group’s physicians and pharmacists, as well as detailing scientific endorsement of the therapeutic use of Mexican flora.

This allows us to trace a historical continuity in the activities of pharmacists in the capital city throughout the nineteenth century.
