With over 400 updates, the 2016 edition of the Pearson Health Care Professional's Drug Guide provides drug information in a quickly accessible format. It lists all drugs alphabetically by generic names for quick reference, with an index listing both generic and trade names. It presents clinical information for hundreds of drugs, with adverse reactions, interactions, side effects, and impacts on lab results.

This edition includes black box warnings, 23 monographs for new drugs recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and a new appendix on Topical Antifungal Medications. IV administration information has been updated regarding adults as well as children. These revisions include subheadings for IV preparation and administration of IV medications for children, which add to the ease of locating appropriate information by age.
