Drug Card Help

  1. I have boughten Nurses Med Deck Drug Cards by Davis Drug Guide (ISBN 080361456X) and MediQuik Drug Cards (ISBN 1582553777). I have also looked at the Mosby's 2008 Nursing Drug Cards (ISBN 0323052207). In buying the Nurses Med Deck and MediQuik Drug Cards I have come to find that the about 50% of the cards I need are in neither of the decks. I have looked at the Mosby's Drug Cards and do not like them what so ever. I also have the Prentice Hall and Davis Drug Guide Books. I do use the Prentice Hall book during my clinicals. I need cards and I need them fast. I was going to buy the drug cards and then type them up on the computer so they would be in my own format.
    Is there any online source where the drug cards can just be copied and pasted or printed off.

    I bought the Davis drug guide which included a cd-rom. On the cd was a program to install that allows you to search for a drug and then it gives you all of the information. I used that info to copy and paste into my care plan. The program is called QLU.

    Here is a web link that we have been using in our class. It is the same drug information as in Lexi-comp drug books. It is fairly easy to cut and paste from the site.
