For more than 30 years, Frank Shann's little booklet has helped physicians all around the world prescribe drugs. DrugDoses now contains more than 2500 entries. It lists every drug commonly prescribed for systemic use in both adults and children. Copies of the booklet can be obtained from firstname.lastname@example.org.
