1. General Comments GREAT WORK--long overdue. Pharmacists and other health professionals have been running to their other references (American Hospital Formulary Service, Facts and Comparisons, Comparative Drug Data, USP DI, even using Micromedex databases, etc.) because the package labeling is so complex--it should be authoritative, concise and easy to read, not the last resort method of obtaining the information. Currently, the labeling is very difficult to use in gleaning the needed prescribing and important counseling information from them when providing information to patients or other health professionals. This new method is just what is needed to revitalize use of the official drug labeling. THANK YOU!
