Use of Indexes

The indexes are meant to help the reader:

1. identify a commercial preparation for a given drug. This information is found in the index "Generic Name ^ Popri-etary Name."

2. obtain information about the pharmacological properties of the active ingredient in a commercial preparation. In order to find the generic (nonproprie-tary) name, the second index "Proprietary Name ^ Generic Name" can be consulted. Page references pertaining to the drug can then be looked up in the Index. The list of proprietary names given below will necessarily be incomplete due to their multitude. For drugs that are marketed under several brand names, the trade name of the original manufacturer will be listed; in the case of some frequently prescribed generics, some proprietary names of other manufacturers will also be listed. Brand names that clearly reveal the drug's identity have been omitted. Combination preparations have not been included, barring a few exceptions.

Many a brand name is not listed in the index "Proprietary Name ^ Generic Name." In these cases, it will be useful to consult the packaging information, which should list the generic (nonpro-prietary) name or INN.
