No one wants to give any book a regretable one star but it is necessary in this case. Mosby's Drug Guide has at least 2 errors and probably has more.
Take for example the drug Trileptal. In the brand name section of this book it is spelled "Trileptin". The only country that spells it this way is Israel.
One other drug that is incorrectly spelled is Mysoline. They list it as "Mysolin". Once again, the only country that spells it this way is Bulgaria.
When speed counts in a medical emergency, please avoid this one at all costs.
The first two sections are all of the prescription drugs available, listed in brand name only. The first one details all of the drugs sold in the USA and select other countries.
The second brand name section is a bit baffling at first glance. None of the brand name drugs in the first section can be found in the second section. I believe this section is for world travellers who wish to purchase their expensive brand name drugs in foreign countries. To find your drug(s), find the page number of your brand name drug (listed alphabetically by generic name) and look to see what your drug is called in the country you will be visiting.
This book is very comprehensive and much cheaper than the PDR. It just takes getting a little used to at first glance.
I agree with the last reviewer that this book takes some getting used to since there are two sections in the front listing brand name drugs. Only the first section, up to page 88 need to be referenced. The following pages list only the brand name drugs in other countries.
Most of us are conditioned to believe that foreigners can speak only their own language. Not true, since many medical professionals were students in the Western world.
All in all, Mosby's Drug Guide is an international reference guide for all persons in the medical field.
