3.0 out of 5 stars good book, perhaps direction is veering off... February 14, 2012
By ron
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

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

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 :)

Very disappointed. I'm a retired nurse. This product, Tarascon Pharmacopoeia was not what I expected. I needed more info on the pamphlet to have made a better decision to buy or not.
