    I Also Recommend:

    A drug book that's easy to digest.

    As a healthcare worker who works in a hospital, I see this book (and its various editions) on just about every floor- whether it be the cardiac floor, neurology floor, or the orthopedic floor. The point is that the scope of this book is so large and complete, that it will be a handy reference to everybody who treats patients, no matter what the diagnosis. So if you're looking for a small, complete drug reference- this is your book. Also recommend The Sixty-Second Motivator for tips on how to increase patient compliancy with taking meds.

    use it every day

    As a nurse in a busy walk in clinic, I and my co workers use this drug guide every day. We use it to figure out what "that little square pill" our patients take but can't remember what the name of it is. We use it to answer questions about possible side effects, and to tell patients how long it might be before they start seeing some results from the prescribed medication. Of course it is also very helpful in finding substitutes for prescribed medications when the pharmacy calls to inform us the origionally prescribed drug isn't covered in the patients plan. It is very easy to use, which is helpful when we are busy. It breaks the index down in catagories that are helpful: the drug names, type and the disease it treats. I can't tell you how many patients have no clue what they are taking. "you know, I can't remember the name, but its for my..." You just go to that section and start reading off names, and most of the time, one of them rings a bell with the patient. I personally purchased for our clinic one for each room and one for the nurses station; mostly because I bought one for my use, but it was so handy, everyone was using them and I got tired of waiting my turn to use my own book!

    Nursing 2009 Drug handbook

    I use the Springhouse drug book. I much prefer it because it has the drugs in their classifications as this book does but it lists them all in alphabetical order. And it lists all of them in the index which the Lippincott book does not. I'll be selling it to a nursing student soon.
