Internet Resources for Drug Information Questions

Stark Learning Center - Room 106 • 570-408-4286 (T) ) • Email

Although we cannot provide access to all of our drug databases, the following online resources provide free access to drug databases that are generally reliable and authoritative.

Disclaimer: Some free resources are supported by companies who are marketing their products. Most make it clear that the medical content is independently generated and that sponsored content is clearly identified; however, users need to vet those resources for potential bias. It is good practice to consult more than one resource.
