The Handbook is the leading injectable drug guide, trusted, turned to and touted the world over for its intuitive, easy to use layout, and its accessible organization and presentation of data.

The 16th edition brings together a wealth of information on 349 parenteral drugs commercially available in the United States and in other countries. Compatibility, stability, storage and preparation data for each have been painstakingly referenced and clearly presented. There are 64 new references, for a total of 2,788.

The book is edited by Lawrence A. Trissel, FASHP, as has been the case for over 30 years of continuous publication. Mr. Trissel and the Handbook on Injectable Drugs continue to set the standard for comprehensiveness, speed, and trustworthiness.
