Reviews of the Current 2015 Edition:
Will update this section when the reviews start coming in for the new edition!
Reviews for Previous Editions below:
"I love this little book. It fits well in the pocket of my white coat and it is easy to use. It gives you all the important info that you need when writing a Rx, such as how the tablets are supplied and the major side effects. From a personal standpoint I dislike electronic references primarily because they are too time consuming. It is much faster to look something up in a paper book than to type in the info that you need and then search on a single page that is frequently too small to hold all the data. Paper also allows you to look at 2 or 3 pages simultaneously without having to flip back and forth for different screens. Great little book at a great price."
"I like this book. It has everything I need in it, but is little enough to fit in a pocket if you want it to."
"In my opinion, this is the best small drug reference available. Everyone that looks at my Scutmonkey wants one. It is much better than Tarascon...."
"Before purchasing this reference I looked at all the reviews,the one review really sold me. Like me, he was a pharm tech student and said that this book really helped him with his homework. I needed to make drug cards and this book was perfect. It's just the right size to slip in the backpack and contains alot of drug information. I would definitely recommend this book."
"This little book is great. It has all of the popular drugs, side effects, and generic and brand names, plus a section in the back for birth control and herbal remedies (plus if the herbal remedies have been found to actually have any therapeutic benefits)."
"This cute little book has most of the pharmacopoeia information in it, plus lists common uses and common side effects. Much more useful and about the same size. I highly recommend it for rotations, it helps me out a lot."
"I purchased this book as a quick reference to use in the clinic. The organization of the book is what made me choose this book over others. In the front there is a breakdown of different drug categories (antibiotics, cardiovascular, antihypertensives, etc.) and in each category it lists the most common drugs used. Handy if a pt comes in and says, "Yea. You know I'm taking that one drug for my heart..."
"I've been ordering this reference every year for about six years now....I highly recommend the Scut Monkey."
"This is an outstanding pocket guide. The Scut Monkey Drug Reference is way more useful and helpful than other pocket sized pharm books. It includes method of action, SE's, and more. Imagine that, a pocket pharm guide with side effects! Who would ever need that information!?! (Other popular pocket books don't include side effects....or method of action.)"
"The quick access to the drug info in my Clinician's Pocket Drug Reference covers most of my drug info needs on a daily basis."
"This is as of now the best pocket reference out there, better than Tarascon or PAPR..."
