New NLM Drug Information Portal

The National Library of Medicine has created the free Drug Information Portal to provide patients, families, and health care professionals with quality information on medication.

Begin by typing a trade or generic name for a medication in the search box, and click “Go.” Your results are links to the following  resources provided by the National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health:

  • Consumer health information from MedLinePlus
  • Label information (packet inserts) from DailyMed
  • References from scientific journals from PubMed
  • Chemical and toxicological information from ToxNet
  • and more!
  • NLM’s Drug Information Portal links you directly to the relevant portions of these websites.  The NLM Drug Information Portal makes it easier to gather information about medications from multiple sources

    Medline is a database that indexes the medical literature.  I encourage accessing Medline on NCBI’s PubMed.   CSUN offers a  URL to link records with our Find Text
