Necessary.
Great reference for protecting yourself/your family against drug interactions.
All I could ask for are photos of pills for identification purposes for those painful/sick days when you just want to be certain the pharmacist didn't give you the wrong thing.
Medical professionals are human too.

We used this as one of our textbooks for drug references when I went through school to be a Medical Assistant. Very through and helpful. There are newer editions of this one available now and I highly recommend it for school and for personal use.

This has always been my favorite nursing drug guide. It has info that several other drug books don't. I recommend this drug guide to all the students I precept. I keep this book in my locker @ work.

Also another nursing must have. Describes every and any medication in detail - what it's for, side effects, dosages etc. Helpful for work but I use it at home too!

Recommends it for: Nursing Students and Nurses
An out of date Drug book is just as wrong as handing the wrong medication, with the wrong route, to the wrong patient, at the wrong time with the wrong documentation.

the writing is a little dry at times, but otherwise a fascinating look deep into the world of pharmacology and drug interactions.

I rely on this book before I put ANY medication in my body. For me, it is literally a life-saver!
