According to Nierenberger, pharmaceutical product names are often misspelled in professional and legal documents. As a result, Nierenberger compiled more than 10,000 commonly used drugs into one volume to act as a desk reference. The latest installment of an ongoing annual series, the book organizes drug names in alphabetical order for convenient research. Information is also categorized into 36 medical specialties, including cardiology, fertility and diabetes.
"This is the only book that provides spellings for all drugs in one easy-to-use resource," Nierenberger says. "It's designed for reporters, nurses, libraries, hospitals, government agencies, law firms, insurance companies, law enforcement agencies or anyone else in need of accurate information about a wide variety of medications."
The book lists popularly prescribed medications like Lipitor and Nexium as well as a host of lesser known drugs including Eserin, Seconal and Sinulin. The book also features typographical representation of drug names as intended by their manufacturers including instances of mixing of upper and lower case letters and the insertion of hyphens.
Drug Speller 2010 is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
