Drug Information

It is called drug information, medication information, or drug informatics. It's really the discovery, use, and management of information in the use of medications. Drug information covers the gamut from identification, cost, and pharmacokinetics to dosage and adverse effects. You may also need information about the body, health, or diseases in order to better utilize the drug information.



When writing a bibliography, remember that the purpose is to communicate to the reader, in a standardized manner, the sources that you have used in sufficient detail to be identified.
