AHFS Consumer Medication Information -- NCBI Bookshelf

AHFS Consumer Medication Information -- NCBI Bookshelf: " This resource contains useful information on more than 1000 drugs, from 'Abacavir' to 'Zonisamide'. You can find out why a particular medication is prescribed, how the medication should be taken, and be advised what to do if you have missed a dose. Side effects, both common and rare, are also listed.

AHFS Consumer Medication Information is a product of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). ASHP is the 30,000-member national professional association that represents pharmacists who practice in hospitals, health maintenance organizations, long-term care facilities, home care, and other components of health care systems. ASHP, which has a long history of medication-error prevention efforts, believes that the mission of pharmacists is to help people make the best use of medicines. Assisting pharmacists in fulfilling this mission is ASHP's primary objective."
