The Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics is an independent, peer-reviewed, nonprofit publication that offers an unbiased, critical evaluation of drugs. With a special emphasis on new drugs, physicians and other healthcare professionals get reliable, up-to-the-minute information from the ease and convenience of their handheld device. It evaluates virtually all new drugs and reviews older drugs when important, new prescribing information becomes available.
The Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics started publication in 1959 and is now part of the everyday practice of many physicians, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, medical educators, residents and interns, as well as medical and pharmacy students. The Medical Letter is intended to meet the needs of the busy healthcare professional who wants unbiased, reliable and timely information on new drugs. Many of these professionals are aware that manufacturers and their representatives may exaggerate the therapeutic effects and understate the adverse effects of drugs, but have neither the time nor the resources to check the accuracy of the manufacturers' claims. If a new drug offers genuine advantages over older drugs, The Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics says so. If it offers no advantage, if its effectiveness is limited, or if it is too toxic or too expensive to justify its use, The Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics says so. If new information changes the picture, follow-up reports are published.
The Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics is updated bi-weekly with the most reliable drug information available. Simply auto synchronize your handheld device and receive the latest edition in an instant.
