Physicians' GenRx is a comprehensive "official drug reference" text supported by the US Food and Drug Administration. Physicians' GenRx for Hard Disk is an electronic version of Physicians' GenRx, and the virtues of the latter are the strengths of the former. It is similar to the widely used Physicians' Desk Reference (PDR), but unlike the PDR, which is essentially a reprint collection of pharmaceutical package inserts, Physicians' GenRx is an unbiased compilation of prescribing information. In addition to the usual categories of clinical pharmacology, indications, contraindications, warnings, dosage and administration, and so forth, Physicians' GenRx contains valuable cost-comparison data and bibliographic citations. The Physicians' GenRx print edition, a hefty, 2700-page, 10-pound text, is straightforward to use and provides detailed prescribing information in a quick, easy-to-scan format.

GenRx for Hard Disk contains the same information as the print edition. The question is, which is easier to use? GenRx for Hard Disk
