How to access Drug Monographs
Having Drug Monographs available within your chosen EMR can be very useful and informative. Drug Monographs give you detailed information about the medication you are about to prescribe your Patients. Our Drug monographs include information on the trade name, generic name, formulation, pharmacological class, dosage, instructions, directions of use, contraindications, warnings/precautions, interactions, side effects, packaging information so on and so forth.
