Finding Drug Information in the Literature
Sometimes complex drug information questions can't be answered by consulting the reference sources listed above. This is often the case for compounded drugs or very rare drugs or diseases. For these questions, you will need to consult primary research articles, which can be found in the below databases:
PubMed is a large database of biomedical literature maintained by the National Library of Medicine. In addition to the main search bar, there is also a tool called Clinical Queries that helps you quickly access relevant clinical research such as clinical trials and systematic reviews.
