PDR Free Download, but don’t forget Dailymed!

The 2014 Physicians’ Desk Reference is available for download.   The download is offered as both a desktop and mobile application and can be used offline or as a live, web-based reference.

However, Dailymed is also available online, as a free government supported resource.  It’s a compilation of package inserts also but manufacturers don’t have to pay to be included so it includes most available generics.
