A good prescribing reference


I am in a NP program and am looking for a good drug reference guide. Looking for more of a quick reference pocket guide that list disease and drugs to treat the disease. Any help would be great.

I work for ID and usually the best app that we use in practice is epocrates. You need a subscription. It lists disease and treatment. I find it pretty effective in practice.

I use UpToDate because that is what our practice uses. Subscription is expensive - approx $450/year

However, our hospital system is moving to DynaMed Plus so I purchased a subscription thru AANP for $149.

Always, always, always use the references that the hospital system or practice uses. This will keep you within their guidelines too.
