The library has drug guide books, resources about prescriptions and pharmacology, and links to reliable websites with drug information. You might need to be logged onto to Canvas for some of the links to work.

 E-Books:

 Reliable Websites:

  • DailyMed (includes indications, usage, contraindications, adverse reactions, dosage, patient counseling, etc. from FDA package inserts - Search by generic or brand name)
  • MedlinePlus: Drugs, Herbs & Supplements (these patient handouts include both prescription and over the counter drugs)
  • PDR.net (registration may be required for some full monographs, but most information available without it. Has prescription and some OTC drugs)

For more help, we have a Research Guide useful for assignments in MED 1160, NUR 1200, NUR 4440 & SCI 1115 courses:
