Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"This reference is widely used and trusted for its established record in refuting unfounded efficacy claims, its rigorous science-based editorial process, and its independence from the influence of pharmaceutical manufacturers."

-- Jennifer Colon, PharmD, MS, MBA (Temple University School of Pharmacy)

"You cannot be a pharmacist without this book. For clinical pharmacists especially it is the standard..."

-- Miriam Klein, Pharm.D. R.Ph. (Woodhull Medical Center) - previous edition

“AHFS Drug Information is by far the most comprehensive and informative drug reference that I use. It offers much more in-depth information and post-marketing [after FDA approval] analysis on drugs.”

-- Jay S. Cohen, M.D., Associate Professor of Family and Preventive Medicine, University of California at San Diego Medical School - previous edition

“There is more in-depth information in AHFS DI, particularly pharmacology and kinetics. At times I especially need the unlabeled uses in AHFS Drug Information to answer questions. Other references don't include as many off-label uses.”

-- Paul Matuschka, Pharm.D., VA Medical Center, Louisville, KY - previous edition
