Best quick paper reference for medications.
Frequent buyer
I am a paramedic and have had this for almost a year, comes in very handy and the perfect size so that it doesn't weigh down the already full pockets in my work pants.

As I was using this, I have run across 2 drugs that when I look them up in the index, It is categorized as "D" indicating it is not in the shirt pocket edition. So, I did a comparison of the first page of the index, and in 2011, there is 16 "D"s on the first page, and 1 PDA. 2012 first page which also ends in the entry aldesluekin, same as 2011, has 29 "D"s and 16 PDA designations. Yet, I have 2 pages of labeling of microbes, and 6 pages of herbal remedies, which vary dramatically by region as to what is in fashion. Where I am not against information of this nature, a drug book is not the right location.
I have used these books for many years, and liked them, the organization, succinctness, the printing, even.
There are many shirt pocket books by tarascon which detail various procedures, treatments, etc. Don't dilute what the pocket pharmacopoeia is, a book about working pharmaceuticals.

I received my book in time. It is REALLY pocket size :D

This is a pharmacist's bible! My pharmacy manager told me that... and I don't think I can live without it. Concise and to the point.

Thank you to the seller for delivering it in such a perfect packaging and to the author for such a wonderful book :)

When technology fails, Tarascon Pharmacopeia is still there. Essential to primary care and hospitalist practice. Allows quick easy refrence of virtually any medication. Knowing the significance is up to you.

I don't always buy this book every year--but I should and it remains one of the 'must haves' for my office and coat pocket. In a very concise fashion it gives the names/dosages/routes/relative expenses/pregnancy categories for the vast majority of medications one can use in a year.

To borrow some of what I wrote on last year's edition--I find this book extremetly useful when I'm looking for something 'outside my normal body parts'. The medications are listed by relevant system and type, then subdivided by class (i.e. for skin, for gyn, antibiotic (penicillin, cephalsporin etc) so if one is trying to jog your memory on something you can narrow it down quickly. Flipping pages rapidly can still work wonders in figuring things out--particularly when a patient isn't exactly sure of the name and there isn't a record to be found.

Of course I have my favorite electronic resources, many with much more details, but this little book has been--and remains--a useful tool. I'm in a job where I lose computer access/phone access and I still need to be able to access the important things.

This book is on the keeper list for paper resources.

Highly Recommended!

edited to add: if you are interested in the same thing, but with just a few pages more of content, compare to this version of the 2012 Tarascon: Tarascon Pocket Pharmacopoeia 2012 Classic Army Edition (Tarascon Pocket Pharmacopoeia: Classic Shirt-Pocket Edition).

Great resource or quick medication look up before you instructor/preceptor asks what med you are giving and why. Have even lost a few to doctors over the years

The Tarascon Pocket Pharacopoeia is a must buy for all medical students and residents. It is a guide to all the major medications on the market today, and a great quick reference for both trade and generic names. I bought this as an intern and used it virtually every day. It's very easy to look up any medication to see the dosing, other names, and category it fits into. As a practicing physician, I use it every day even now. Very highly recommended.
The other handbook that I recommend, that fits great in your pocket is The Sanford Guide to Antimicrobial Therapy 2012 (Guide to Antimicrobial Therapy (Sanford)). This is a great guide to antibiotic dosing and choice. I have used this nearly every day both as a resident and practicing physician.

Where have the good old days gone? The Tarascon Pharmacopoeia used to be a pleasure and delight to browse. Apparently, the purchase of the book by a new publisher several years ago led to several changes (for the worse). First, they changed the font to a clunky 60s Courier-style monstrosity. It was better before. Second, they shifted a large number of the Drugs off the pocket edition onto the digital or lab-coat edition. Thus, even such bread and butter drugs as promethazine, sertraline, and triamterene are not available. Last and perhaps most painful is the removal of the immortal "Liver and Onions" joke in the Excretion section at the beginning of the book. A good value used, the price of a new book is increasingly unreasonable.
