Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials
"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)
“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
“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
