The Dispensatory of the United States of America

JAMA. 1956;160(8):723. doi:10.1001/jama.1956.02960430113027

The 25th (1955) edition of this encyclopedic compilation of information on drugs from various contributors conforms to the manner of presentation of the 24th (1947) and previous editions. The new edition eliminates information on drugs no longer used and also the section formerly devoted to general testing procedures and reagents. More than 200 pages have been added to cover the rapidly accumulating number of agents that have been introduced since the previous edition. Dosage information has been amplified, general statements on pharmacological classes of drugs have been added, and the section on veterinary drugs enlarged. Part 1 contains monographs on individual drugs included in the United States, British, and International pharmacopeias and the National Formulary; part 2 contains monographs on drugs not included in the foregoing publications and general statements on classes of related drugs from both sections; and part 3 contains monographs concerning veterinary uses and dosage of drugs.
