PDR Consumer Guide to Prescription Drugs is a new consumer-focused publication providing critical prescription drug information in an easy-to-understand, reader-friendly format. This new title details key aspects of FDA-approved prescription drug information allowing consumers to “know what their doctor knows” about their medications, providing the tools they need to take a more active role in their health.
Who is the PDR Network?
PDR Network is the industry’s #1 source of trusted and reliable drug information for prescribers by pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, physicians and other healthcare professionals, the government and electronic health record developers. For more information, visit www.pdrnetwork.com.
When it comes to medical information I try to steer clear of the Internet unless I know for sure that it’s a reliable source. There is so much false information out there. Every household should own a reference book like this one, especially if you have small children or elderly adults in your life. It contains full-color drug photos for easy identification and information about dosages, side effects and drug interactions.
Personally, having all of this information in one place makes things so much easier then having to do a search everytime something comes up. I have also found that I have become a source of information for friends and family when it comes to medications and having this will definitely come in handy when someone needs some quick reliable information!
The Guide also includes a foreword by New York Times’ best-selling author and respected medical expert, Dr. Dean Ornish, Founder and President of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. This trade paperback edition is a new release from the publishers of the Physicians’ Desk Reference (PDR®) – the most highly trusted drug information reference available, relied on by healthcare professionals for more than 65 years.
A good one to own for your reference library.
