More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

Exactly what you need to know about 1000 of the most commonly used medications

Proving that sometimes less text can deliver more information, this super-concise guide covers more than one thousand of the most commonly used medications. Organized alphabetically by generic drug name, Clinician's Pocket Drug Reference zeros-in on must-know information such as selection and administration, mechanisms of action, dosage, cautions, contraindications, and side effects.

"A big plus is the herbal section, which lists the medicines patients are most likely to try on their own, presented in the same layout as the rest of the book....For its size, this book is a valuable reĀ¬source. It takes up very little pocket room, and it is an efficient way to recall details about familiar drugs."--Yale Journal of Biology & Medicine

    Good refrence

    To the previous reviewer, us in the medical field use things like this for refrence. We wouldnt whip it out in front of a patient. It would replace a hard copy at home or in the office. Or better yet save trees if people have not purchased the book yet.

    Does not work on Tablet

    When you type in your word the keyboard only has the "done" option. This does not allow the search to begin. It is useless.
