Description:

“The authoritative source of FDA-approved information on
prescription drugs.

Physicians have turned to PDR [Physicians’ Desk Reference] for the latest word on prescription drugs for over 60 years! Today, PDR is 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 drug information reference source.

The 2007 PDR includes more than 4,000 drugs by brand and generic
name, plus over 2,000 full-size, full-color images of products, cross-referenced to the drug.”
