Within each diagnoses, appropriate drug choices are listed by generic name, FDA pregnancy category, availability in generic or over-the-counter, adult/pediatric dosing regimens, brand names, dose forms, and information regarding additives. Thirty Appendices provide quick access to key drug classifications, FDA Pregnancy Categories, US Schedule of Controlled Substances, Immunization Schedules, and much more.
