The Merck Manual offers a feature designed to provide you immediate access to certain drug information at the point in the content where a drug is mentioned. For example, when you encounter a drug name surrounded by a grey box, touch the drug name. This action pops up a small box containing some trade names for the drug, as well as a link to a drug monograph. Click on the link to get a complete drug monograph that can contain mechanism of action, contraindications, adverse reactions, overdosage, use in pregnancy, drug interactions, and other useful information.
