Excellent reference book
By Bobby M on Jan 13, 2013
As a pharmacist, this is a great go-to-book to reference whenever I need an immediate answer on dosing for an infant/child/adolescent. Especially in babies where the information is not always the easiest to locate as a pharmacist, this book has cleared up some important questions and problems that I have encountered in the past.

I was looking to upgrade my clinic's reference library, and this was the perfect one to accomplish that. Lexicomp is the best.

It's very usefull for my job. It's the last version of a classic for pediatrics. Everyone involved have to purchase this book.

This book has all information you want on any drug! While there's lots of information, I found this book somewhat hard to read. Print is small.

It's comprehensive, and provides the answers I need to pediatric dosing. A must have resource for anyone working in the pediatric health world.

The reference is very complete and appropriate for professions in our very busy, surgical NICU including all the multidisciplines. Some of the patients stay for an extended period of time qualifying them for dosing beyond the Newborn period. This reference is great in that it includes both specialties. It is a very complete book that we often are able to use as a single reference, if desired, and information very often confirmed by our own knowledgable Pharmacy staff.

I liked everything! The book was true to description and came on time. I was happy with the whole process. Book is brand new with no tears, bends, or anything.

Book for a pharmacist
By Agj on Jan 18, 2015
wasted my money on this one, Just another version of The PDR, which is laying around in all hospital units . Can't think of any reason why I would need this as a practitioner

This was greatly useful to me when I worked as an intern pharmacist and it is still useful to me working now as a Pharmacist! These clinical pharmacists and other authors created a wonderful medication reference. This handbook came in handy even in the outpatient and independent pharmacy settings when I filled prescriptions for children.
