Mosby's Drug Consult 2002 is the newest edition of the respected drug information source, Mosby's GenRx. It has been renamed to better reflect the purpose of the book. It is still the same easy-to-use reference containing the most current, complete drug information. New information and new features make it the one source to consult when you need drug information.
Mosby's Drug Consult has earned the respect of health care providers for a number of reasons. First, it provides complete information on all U.S.-approved prescription pharmaceuticals. We don't let the drug companies decide which drugs make it into our database -- unlike another reference on the market. We decide which drugs to include, and it is a very easy decision -- all FDA-approved prescription drugs are included. Second, a team of editors monitors the current literature to ensure the most current, up-to-date data is incorporated into the drug monographs. Finally, Mosby's Drug Consult contains more than just the package insert. Product information, including price and therapeutic equivalency ratings, international brand names, comparative drug tables, immunization schedules, and common lab values are examples of some of the additional content you will find in our database.
The product information includes manufacturer, dosage form, dosage strength, price, and NDC code. Each drug monograph begins with a unique section containing important information such as indications, drug classes, U.S. and international brand names, estimated cost of therapy, pregnancy category, and DEA controlled substance schedule. No other drug reference includes all these features in one source.
International brand name equivalents of U.S. drugs are rapidly becoming an essential piece of information. With the increase in fast and affordable travel, more and more patients are showing up in hospital emergency rooms, doctors' offices, dentists' chairs, and pharmacies taking drugs prescribed abroad or prescriptions written by health care providers in foreign countries. Mosby's Drug Consult is a comprehensive drug reference with nearly 14,000 international brand names from 137 countries. International brand names plus extensive product data, on top of complete drug information, means Mosby's Drug Consult can be your one source -- saving you valuable time and money.
New to this 2002 edition are complete monographs for the top 50 most commonly used herbs and supplements. These are the natural products your patients are most likely to be taking. These are extensively referenced, evidence-based monographs. Each monograph contains quick synopses of clinical studies, proposed dosage, proposed indications, warnings, precautions, known and potential drug interactions, adverse reactions, and important information to share with the patient.
All the drug information in the world is useless if it is difficult or too time-consuming to find. Speeding the user to the information they need quickly and efficiently is a feature at which this reference excels. Our database is organized alphabetically by generic name; often you can skip the index and turn right to the drug information you need. For the times when you are not sure of the drug name, Mosby's Drug Consult has a single, complete keyword index. Index terms include generic and brand name, condition, and drug class. Look up "obsessive-compulsive disorder" in the keyword index, for example, and you will quickly find a list of all the approved drugs to treat that condition.
Mosby's Drug Consult contains all the necessary information in the format you want -- book, CD-ROM, handheld, or Internet version -- to meet the daily challenges of providing professional, safe drug therapy for your patients. It has been designed by health care providers for health care providers to be the only drug source you will need. (David Nissen, Pharm.D., R.Ph., Editor)
