Citing Drug Monographs
Many students have asked about how to cite drug monogrpahs in the past few weeks. Because the AMA Manual of Style does not provide an example of how to do this, and because there is not a consensus among professionals on how best to cite this type of information, it can be confusing. To make matters more simple, the College of Pharmacy and College of Health Professions Liaison has updated the AMA style guide with examples from Facts and Comparisons, Lexicomp, and Micromedex. Please refer to the style guide when citing drug monographs.
