The "Physicians' Desk Reference" has been the premier reference on prescription drugs for 69 years. This highly respected, instantly recognized book is found in nearly every physician's office, clinic, hospital, pharmacy, and library. Completely updated every year, the "PDR" provides critical, current information on the most commonly prescribed drugs in the U.S. Every full, FDA-approved drug label in the "PDR" includes dosages, indications, warnings and precautions, side effects, safety information such as contraindications, pregnancy ratings, interactions with other drugs, food, and alcohol, clinical trials data, time-sensitive email reports delivering news of important label changes, new FDA product approvals, and other health-related information.
Comprehensive indexing by a drug's brand and generic name, as well as by its manufacturer and therapeutic category, gives users multiple, easy ways to access the information they seek. The "PDR" also includes a product identification guide with hundreds of full-color images of products.
