Martindale: The Complete Drug Reference (Complete Drug Reference (Martindale)) 38th EdBook Reviews: The aim of Martindale is to provide healthcare professionals with unbiased evaluated information on drugs and medicines used throughout the world. It therefore has to develop as the body of knowledge on existing drugs grows, new drugs emerge, new preparations are launched, and old preparations are abandoned, reformulated, or redefined. It also has to reflect the changing needs of those practicing pharmacy and medicine.

The authors try to ensure that each new edition continues to meet all these needs. In order to provide more up-to-date information the interval between the publication of the printed versions of Martindale has been reduced over successive editions and the book is now produced about every 2 years.

For those who require even more up-to-date information from Martindale there are various electronic versions, sections of which are updated more frequently.
