Publisher's Statement

Monthly Prescribing Reference (MPR) [and its sister publications] is an up-to-date guide to commonly prescribed pharmaceuticals, as well as certain OTC products. It has been produced to provide an easily accessible reminder of basic information useful to review when prescribing medications, such as specific indications for use, dosage, and a checklist of precautions, interactions, and adverse drug reactions. Reference should always be made to each drug being co-administered. The information it contains is intended solely for use by the medical profession. It is not intended for lay readers. This reference has been assembled and edited by an experienced staff of pharmacists and pharmacologists, utilizing information available from FDA-approved labeling. Distinctions have not necessarily been made between those reactions that are well documented and/or clinically significant, and those that carry only a theoretical risk. A renowned board of consulting medical specialists has also independently reviewed the product references.

However, although every effort is made to assure accuracy, the information in MPR [and its sister publications] is not necessarily reviewed by the supplier of a particular drug. If any questions arise about information in MPR, the physician should verify it against labeling or by contacting the company marketing the drug. The publisher and editors do not warrant or guarantee any of the products described or the information describing them. THE PUBLISHER AND EDITORS DO NOT ASSUME, AND HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN SUCH INFORMATION OR FOR ANY USE OF ANY OF THE PRODUCTS LISTED.

No prescription drug should be used except on the advice of, and as directed by, a physician. The training and experience of a physician are essential to forming any opinion on the appropriateness of a specific drug for a specific patient. The information in this publication is not by itself sufficient for a lay person--or even a physician--to evaluate the risks and benefits of taking any particular drug.

In reaching professional judgments on whether to prescribe a pharmaceutical, which to prescribe, and under what regimen, the physician should thoroughly understand the options available for any clinical application, the potential effectiveness of each product, and the associated risks and side effects. This knowledge should be considered in light of the special circumstances of the patient, for each patient is unique. No single reference can substitute for medical training and experience. The physician must be familiar with the full product labeling, provided by the manufacturer or distributor of the drug, of every product he or she prescribes, as well as the relevant medical literature.

Certain additional qualifications are important in using this book. First, MPR [and its sister publications] has been deliberately kept concise, with a standardized format, so that it could be a convenient reference tool. This means that lengthy and detailed explanations about certain aspects of drugs commonly found in labeling are omitted or condensed. Second, by revising and reprinting monthly, MPR [and its sister publications] should be the most up-to-date guide to prescription drugs now available in print. Only the current issue should be used.

The prescribing decision is ultimately the responsibility of the physician or prescribing healthcare professional. MPR [and its sister publications] is offered to assist physicians and prescribing healthcare professionals in this area.
