The Drugs & Bugs app by Monthly Prescribing Reference (MPR) is an essential resource for allied healthcare professionals, clinicians, and residents who care for patients with infectious diseases. It is also a useful reference guide for students receiving clinical training. It provides comprehensive, information on anti-infective spectrum of efficacy against microorganisms. Use the searchable alpha indexes or search the Bugs and Drugs by infection type or drug class to begin your query.

MPR has been a leader in providing medical professionals with concise prescription and OTC drug information, side effects, and interactions for over 26 years. Our mission is to continually help clinicians make critical decisions at the point-of-care.
