What are the drug topic summaries in DynaMed?

DynaMed includes more than 1,000 topic summaries on AHFS Drug Information®. AHFS Drug Information is a tested and proven source of comparative, unbiased, and evaluative drug information. It is a unique and essential reference for healthcare professionals.

With the addition of AHFS Drug Information, DynaMed is now the only source that integrates prescribing reference information and evidence-based drug information that is updated on a daily basis. The AHFS topic summaries utilize the same DynaMed navigation methodology used for disease and condition topic summaries – A-to-Z Browse, Browse Topic, Browse by Category, Search Text, and Recently Updated.

The DynaMed AHFS Drug Topic Summary sections are:

  • General Information 
  • Uses and Efficacy  
  • Dosage and Administration 
  • Cautions 
  • Drug Interactions
  • Mechanisms of Actions/Pharmacokinetics
  • Stability
  • Preparations
  • Patient Information
  • References
  • Acknowledgements

Upon viewing an AHFS topic summary, any applicable "warnings" are expanded by default; all other sections are collapsed.
