Healthcare professionals have turned to PDR for the latest word on prescription drugs for over 50 years! Today, PDR is still considered the standard prescription drug reference and can be found in virtually every physician's office, hospital and pharmacy in the United States. In fact, nine out of ten doctors consider PDR their most important reference source.
The 53rd edition is more than 3,000 pages, our largest edition ever! You'll find the most complete data on over 4,000 drugs by brand and generic name (both in the same convenient index), manufacturer, and product category.
The 1999 PDR also provides usage information and warnings, drug interactions, dosages, adverse reactions, pediatric use and all other FDA-required information. It also includes more than 2,000 full-size, full-color photos cross-referenced to the drug.

A GREAT HOME REFERENCE AS WELL
As long as you have a nominal understanding
of medicine and medical terminology, this book is well worth the price.
As a matter of fact, it is priceless! Ever have a doctor scribble out a
prescription and hand it over to to you without even telling you what it
is, or does? Sure you have, we all have. With the PDR you can look
it up and decide for yourself if you should seek a second opinion. Some
doctors make a living just selling useless (and sometimes dangerous) medications.
The PDR also functions as a primer on medicine and the US health
care delivery system.
Drugs, especially psychiatric drugs, ALL have negative and harmful side-effects. The practicing doctor or psychiatrists doesn't often tell their patients the facts about side-effects and often themselves are not even aware of them. Anybody considering taking any psychiatric drugs needs to learn the facts about them before ingesting what are in most cases unknown chemical agents.
