  • Missing medications

    I am in nursing school and going through pharmacology. I wanted a book that I could rely on to carry the medication information to do my clinical papers. This book has the basic list of medications, but one medication that I deal with a lot is thyroid, and there isn't anything in here about those.
  • This totally rocks!!
