“Familiar and firmly established, the PDR® is a staple with healthcare professionals everywhere. Whether in a pharmacy, clinic, physician office, or library, the PDR is a recognized resource for information on thousands of current FDA-approved drugs. This electronic version of the PDR gives you instant access to all the information contained in the PDR, the PDR® for Nonprescription Drugs and Dietary Supplements, and the PDR® for Ophthalmic Medicines.

The Physician's Desk Reference is an excellent reference not just for drugs, but also for natural dietary supplements like vitamins, minerals and fish oils.

The electronic version of the PDR that is now available from the Free Library includes the PDR for Nonprescription Drugs and Dietary Supplements. There is a separate PDR for Herbs that is not included, but it would be a nice addition. These supplemental guides are important because many patients now do their own health research and prefer natural health alternatives. The Free Library is providing an excellent resource for these patients. Many patients will self-medicate with medicinal foods and dietary supplements, and doctors are becoming more comfortable treating patients with natural health products.

This is very good news as I purchased my last hard copy some years ago and updated it using the most recent versions from the library. My next stop will be to find the site and subscribe if possible. This is not only a good reference source for those in healthcare, but for home use it can't be beat.
